Where do I attach the A/C ground cable?

I have noticed that I have not connected a ground cable on my 160E 2.6. I believe it is for the A/C compressor. Which bolt is it supposed to be attached to?

I think this wire connects to the rear of the power steering pump to help ground all of the connections in the front of the engine and the ABS pump.

Thanks. I thought at first that it was to attach to the PS pump, but the cable looked like it wanted to go down, so I thought A/C.

Didn't get home till late and spent the last hour putting the two bolts into the top of the intake brackets. (underneath the intake) Now it's on to the flex plate bolts...
