Sorry to bump an old thread... but can I solder the wire to the location circled on the pic below? or would I have to try to find another ground?
Or, can I solder a tab to this location?
thanks in advance!!

You can wrap 2-3 turns of the ground wire around the spot circled below, then wrap with electrical tape. Note that that point is part of the metal strip that goes to all bulbs.

used to hate german cars... now i have 2!!!!
