If you mean the one by the Pax side firewall, I just cut a length of 8 gauge copper wire and soldered a couple eyelets to it.
It's P/N 65311730952. My car could use one, too (it's breaking in the middle). My understanding is that it's a ground strap which helps reduce RF interference with the stereo, but doesn't affect anything else. You can either get the OEM part, or you can find generic ground straps at many auto parts and/or hardware stores, etc.

Thanks man, no wonder I couldn't find it it (radio section lol?!). Ideally I would make my own but I figure after tools and materials it'd be cheaper to buy an oem one. The generic ones available to me locally look out of place. Again, thanks for posting the PN.

Just curious about that RF interference bit... I've finally decided I've had enough of the horrible squeal on my AM radio (football season is here) and am trying to track down the source of it. Has anyone replaced this strap and found it to reduce AM noise?

I have an extra if anyone needs one.
Does it have any cracks in the casing?
The first thing I would do is ground strap your alternator to the frame and see if that helps..
