Default Looking for a good ground point behind stereo. Anyone know?

I am adding a Sony Mex XB100BT. to my '06xB. The instructions recommend
that it has it's own direct ground to the chasis.

I only have about 12 inches of ground wire, and I do not want to splice more length on if I do not have to.

Does anyone know if there is an accessible grounding point close to the head unit?


Thanks

There is a spot behind the climate controls that people have used as a grounding point when doing foglights that are independent of the headlights.

Shoot me a PM with your e-mail address and I can get you a document with pictures of where it is...you should be able to reach it with your existing grounding wire.

Thanks MileHightC. After digging around behind the climate controls you mentioned, and DMM-ing here and there, I found one.
