Default Left strut ground??

I popped the hood today and noticed that the left strut ground was not connected. Well it was connected to the strut but not to what it is grounding. Where does it go? It looks like it goes to the pcm, right now it has missed matched bolts and the ground bolt matches. Is that where it goes?

One end is bolted to the engine cylinder head. The other of the engine ground strap end attaches to a bolt on the top of the strut tower.

As a precaution I would disconnect the negative lead on the battery before re-connecting that ground strap.

No need to be fiddling with the battery.
