Are you certain that it’s actually the terminal that’s shorting out and not some other component? 
With power off, I’d attach an ohmmeter lead to a shiny spot on the chassis and then use the other probe to test components to see if you can find any areas with continuity.  

You can also check from the neutral to various components.  It might not be the terminal unless you’ve seen evidence of an arc on it.
