Hello all

Just a quick one i hope someone can confirm for me.

Noticed today when cleaning the car the OBD port is under the steering wheel ( Right hand drive model ) but it's just exposed but looks like a cover could of fitted there.

Have a look at the picture, if anyone can chime in that would be great.

Looks a lot like mine, except I have a LHD. There is no way to see this from a normal viewing angle and I doubt if dirt, water, etc can easily get up into the port. Some place like Grainger ( https://www.grainger.com/ ) might sell a port cover that fits. I find their site hard to navigate though.

If you find a suitable cover, let us know, there might be others interested in a cover as well.

Yeah, looks like it projects past the surface too. Port on my 360 is open air the same below steering wheel.

I have connected to many OBD ports on various car brands to download crash analysis data. I never saw one with a cover.

Thanks for the information guys

At least now i know it is not missing from new.

However i was more referring to an entire panel that fits the recess as opposed to a cover for the socket itself.

Either way if it is not fitted then it doesn't matter. I doubt i'll have issues leaving it exposed.

While a cover would hid that shoddy from prying eyes, it would be another step as well as something to misplace when taking OBD readings.
