Step 1: Get a pen, like the Bic pen in the picture.
Step 2: Open the rear end.
Step 3: Burn the rear end. Use a lighter or something. Don't burn it too much. The plastic needs to get weak.
Step 4: Put the rear end in one of a Model M's screw holes so it fits over one of the bolts. Press firmly.
Step 5: Wait until the plastic gets firm again.
Step 6: Start to unscrew the bolt.
Step 7: Break the pen, fail to open the Model M.
Step 8: Buy a 5.5mm nut driver.

For the Model m it fits only if you push strongly...

Indeed. I think it's only found on newer model Ms. My UK-manufactured 1396790 (blue label) from 1995 has it while my 1390131 from 1986 (square silver label, also UK-manufactured) doesn't.
BTW, I highly doubt that this ground wire has any effect at all.
