Customer Question

Hi I have a 2013 Mercedes B Class 180 Diesel. I have just been sent a plug in telematics device by my insurers who want me to plug it into the OBD port. Is it safe to do this and if so where is the port?

Hi Jonathan,

We have a few customers now that have these devices without any problems.

The OBD port is located under the drivers side of the dash - there is a small flap that just unclips to release and the device can be plugged in.

Best regards, Paul

Thanks - all I can see is the parking brake lever. Is the flap somewhere near that?

It is right underneath the lower dash panel in the footwell.

Best regards, Paul
