More of a moan than anything
#1
Why is it so hard to find an earth in the engine bay for things like alarm systems etc. Sad

Passenger side inner wing, opposite the battery, there's an earth stud. (A big one).

Look above the strut top, you'll see it. May need to add a bolt there instead, to take a ring crimp.

Oh my life, I thought that was something critical holding something to do with the wing. Blush  Had I realised I would have used it.

I actually put a bolt in a hole a long time ago which is about 5" away from that.   My alarm unit is on the other side of the car!  So I ran a wire across to my bolt.

for small consumers you can use any metal screw inside engine bay, just measure from that screw that you have continuity to the ( - ) battery terminal

I decided to use for my alarm system just installed. I replaced the dreaded torx with a regular M8 bolt. Wink
