Default location of transmission ground strap

Can someone tell me ( or show me in a diagram) where the transmission ground strap is on a 2001 PT Cruiser?

Default Re: location of transmission ground strap

I got this answer from PT

The use of braided ground straps in key locations is part of the RFI and EMI prevention strategy on the PT. These ground straps ensure adequate ground paths, particularly for high current components such as many of those found in the starting, charging, ignition, engine control and transmission control systems. One end of the engine ground strap is bolted to the engine cylinder head. The other end attaches to a bolt on the top of the strut tower. As a precaution disconnect the negative lead on the battery before re-connecting the ground strap.
