    Nope not for an earth usually a cable holder bolts on there. The alternator earth is through its body onto the engine block. If the charge is ok around 14 volts with the engine running then I would rule the alternator as ok. More possible something isn't switching off with the ignition off and draining the battery. You need to carry out a current draw test on the vehicle with it in its locked state.
