Must be within reach of the driver by regulation... so if not under the steering column try the centre console area, On the later Zaf it was somewhere in the lower centre console IIRC so probably the same for an Astra

There’s a plastic cover underneath the handbrake lever. Pull it up and your prize will be revealed 👍

This

Try not to brake the clips though, it kind off pulls up one side then slides off the other.

Good question!  Given that it has rudely been described as Victorian by our aristocratic member from Lincolnshire, it might be OBDI.  :-\

It has a big round plug and I have to use an adapter to use my code reader.  :)

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

OBD sockets(whether 1,2 or EOBD) are trapezium shaped, and must be accesible from the driver's seat.

If Sir Tigger has an E39, the early model definitely had a round (OBD) Diagnostic Port in the engine bay but later E39's have the traditional rectangular socket behind a panel on the dash by the drivers right knee (UK spec). My mate had both models so I know that's the case.  :y
I believe that some models ended up with both connectors present. If the dash connector is there, it will be behind another flap with OBD marked on it.

Basically 2001 on in europe ;)

My '51 525s was under the column as described above, as is the Trolley... The trolley's stalemate has a socket under the bonnet but only late models(' 98/99) have one under the dash, and then it's pot luck ;)
