Default Fuel tank ground strap

I just got done replacing the fuel pump on a 2003 L 200.

When I was removing the bolt for the fuel tank ground strap, the head broke off the bolt.

Do I need to re-mount the ground strap, or can I let it dangle, or even cut it off?

I would definitely remount the ground strap. The manufacturer put it there for a reason, it wasn't accidental. Failing to utilize the ground strap could lead to other electrical problems. Leaving it disconnected, or removing it, is not worth the risk of more trouble.

Biden/Harris predictions, '21 -'25: weak economy; weaker military; more terrorism; emboldened RED CHINA. Sadly, B & H are proving me correct.
