Ground Straps F30

Hi All
I have just been having some issues with slow crank and starting and have ruled out a bad battery and alternator, all read well on multi meter when ignition on and off.
I have just changed the Ground strap that is located near the front of the exhaust and understand that there is a second strap on the passenger side under the engine?

What splash guard do I need to remove to get visibility of this one?

The battery is fine, I have tested the voltage on both stationary and idle and both are god readings, which means it is also unlikely the alternator too.

I really just want to know if anybody can tell me where the second, if any ground strap is. I have replaced the one at the base of the exhaust, so looking for the one that is supposed to be under the engine

Check the TIS - perhaps it mentions it. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/
