Question Name the part!

I can't figure out what this part is, can anyone name it?

Next to the main body earth behind the battery on my 2001 espace is a thin white wire (also going to earth) with a black plastic covered component of some kind attached to it.

It can be seperated from the wire so it's a replaceable part.

Can anyone tell me what it's called; or exactly what it does?

I have a basic understanding of electrics but i'm not up on my components and a white wire to earth seems odd. I also want to know what the difference is between a normal earth and an "electronic earth".

It's been doing my head in trying to figure out what that part is and the differences between earth types.

Consider this a challenge!!!

Winners get......erm.....kudos.

And my gratitude - for what it's worth.

pics of said part to follow.
