Welcome to tM. I overlooked your thread and Iím struggling to identify it myself but have you tried the realoem site? You simply add in your vin number, it should provide details of the part with the relevant number.

If it's just a plastic one pushed onto a "threaded" stud then it's a connection block. If it's corroded make a not of what's connected to what inside it, chop it off and crimp the relevant wires together to remake the connections. The ones with metal tabs that are held onto the chassis with a nut are the ground bonding blocks - they only have brown wires going into them.
