    Hi, I would like to find out if my SLK 320 (year 2000) has one or two diagnostic sockets. I can only find the one near the bonnet release catch but I think I saw somewhere a mention of one under the bonnet. If this is so could anybody guide me as to where it is positioned.

    Regards pjtynan

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info jib but my mechanic and I cannot find the socket anywhere. Is it possible my model does not have a second socket?

    Regards pjtynan and thanks again.

    Only the 1 x 38 pin socket on a 170 under the bonnet


    Is there a socket under the dash or just the cut out for it

    Hi, Malcolm

    There is a socket under the dashboard near the bonnet release but no sign of one in the engine bay anywhere.

    Thanks again,

    No worries then...that's all you need. It's for OBD2.
