I have nearly finished replacing a faulty turntable motor on

Resolved Question:

I have nearly finished replacing a faulty turntable motor on my Breville Microwave BRE997SSG. However, a wire that "fell off" its terminal (my fault) whilst I was doing the stripdown now needs reconnecting. The wire connects an electrical component (which looks like a capacitor) between Chassis (the underside plate) and a non-selfevident terminal, via a small push-on connector. I can see two possible terminals but I am loathe to use the "suck-it-and-see" method!! Can you help me, please?
Thank you,
Bob

I have taken a photo (attached) of the cable and connector, and annotated the relevant parts.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

The bleed diode should be connected to the unshielded terminal on the right in your image (The terminal that is not fused) .
Be careful that the capacitor is fully discharged as a shock from a capacitor such as this can kill.
