Default Radio ground?

Anyone know where the radio ground wire is under the hood in my '99 SLE? I'm getting radio static that I've determined to be a failing ground.

I have the AM/FM/CD combo.

Thanks.

Well, I don't see it with a cursory inspection with a pocket mirror, guess I'll have to look harder when time permits.

the best ground you will get is if you re-ground it yourself on a clean piece of metal, and then clean the battery to ground and alt to ground cables.

You wont want to go this far most likely, but I noticed a nice improvement when I ran 4awg wire from alt+ to the bat+ alt , alt- to batt- and bat- to the chassis.
