It's to the right of the steering wheel, underneath the fuse box cover.

To get at it, loosen off the handscrew below the steering column and drop the lid down (it's hinged at the back).

Hope this helps.

If it is the same as on the GTV then it has a black plastic cover over it and is therefore tricky to see at first.

Hello,

Should I get OBD2 or OBD for 166 pre 2003?

Obd ii

OK, the autocorrect/swear filter on this site is just plain daft...

I tried to type OBD II in caps, but it won't have it at the start of a sentence - it very kindly converts it to upper/lower. And it won't accept ***** (as in the greek letter A L P H A).
