When running the self-bleeding procedure on an F10, is the coolant reservoir cap closed? Or should be left open? (I do not see a bleed screw.....) - how the air will be released?

Does the F10 has a Ground strap?

Can't find the location or the Ground strap itself.
Can someone confirm if the F10 (535ix 2011) has one and the location (or a picture) of it?
Thanks !
