Default Broken ground wire from strut to chassis.

I was getting my tires rotated and they discovered a broken ground wire from chassis to strut. They researched this and found that it is needed to prevent an arc on the wheel bearings which can wear out the bearings. Mechanic was able to splice and wrap the splice. Supposedly this is a common problem. Glad I caught it and got it fixed. Has anyone else had this occur?

Glad I got it fixed. He didn't have one to replace it, just spliced it, hope it is ok.

Noticed mine had degraded and was hanging down when I changed my brake discs last month. Thought it was there to simply help reduce interference on the radio. Glad I kept it, will have to patch it up and refit now. It's so cold here now I don't know when I'll get a chance. How long do you think I could get away without fitting it if I drive the car almost every day?
