Instrument cluster ground

I removed the instrument cluster from my Nova today (basically the same as Camaro) and have one question. There is a black wire attached to the metal piece that ties the wiper switch with the headlight switch (grounding, I assume). This wire was not attached to anything even before I started working on it. It appears to be a ground wire and it looks like it has pulled from its mount position but I don't know where that may be. Looking at the chasis manual, it may attach to a mounting point on the bottom of the carrier to dash metal. Is that correct?

Re: Instrument cluster ground

Correct, the 69 Camaro one grounds the headlight and wiper switch. The black wire should have a flat loop connector at the end and it gets screwed to the metal dash brace nearby.

Re: Instrument cluster ground

Thanks Kevin. What puzzles me is that all of the dash lights, headlight switch and wiper switch worked without this ground wire attached.
