Capacitor on Alternator

Ok. I have 1994 Defender 90. I am replacing my Alternator and the new one came with the wire from the capacitor routed to the terminal that goes to the battery. The old alternator had the capacitor wire routed to the terminal that has the push on connector. Can someone look and see where it is supposed to go? Thanks

Probably a radio noise suppressor. Post a picture.

Leave it off and see if there are any ill effects.
Those things are a nuisance when they fail and short out.
If you don't need it, you will be better off putting it in the round file that gets emptied in the trash.

As mentioned before.. That is just a noise suppressor.. Stops/reduces that annoying buzzing sound through your radio that increases decreases with engine revs.. It just needs to be on any output power source from the battery, I have seen them placed on either..
