Part left over after reassembly to replace speaker

I replaced the speaker without removing the battery.

I have a little black bracket with a gold finger left over after I reassembled. It has what looks to be a screw hole in it. I took everything apart again and looked carefully at all your pictures but can't tell where it goes.

See picture, it's the little backer shown next to the speaker assembly.

Is this a good question?

Can't see any picture...?

But is it this one?

If it is: It's the small black ground clip on the upper screw of the battery connector.

The picture show you where to put it :)

You can see it on step 5 in the "iPhone 4S Speaker Enclosure Replacement"-guide
