I'm reassembling an iPhone 4 after installing a new display assembly. I can't find where the wifi grounding fingers go, and the guide isn't very helpful in showing a visual.

The grounding fingers run along the edge of the battery tray lip and you need to get the clip on thew inside edge toward the bottom of the phone just inside the lip.

in this guild go to section 15 and the second pic you will see the lip that holds the battery in place make sure when you seat the speaker that the grounds are on the bottom side of this lip and you'll be fine. Hope this is of help

I'm still not seeing specifically where it goes. Is there any picture with the spot circled?

Just like Jimfixer said. The 4 metal antenna fingers go down and against the metal plate. There is no snap in spot, they just rest against the plate. Push them beyond the plate with a nudge from a spudger. https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig...

First place the WiFi connector to the connector on the logic board.

Then the WiFi grounding clip is placed with:

the downward metal fangs placed to the left of the orange circled standoff screw, down into the slot below that silver bar. The grounding clip screw hole goes over the orange circled standoff screw.
