Done a good search of both the internet and this site - cannot locate where the OBD cable pugs in on a MKIII - 2007

Please advise
Many thanks

between the steering column and the drivers door about where you knee hits the lower dash
"I choose to live my life to a different tune of music, one which is not censored or wrapped up so much with a blanket of over regulation, Health and Safety gone mad (because these days it has), fear and blind compliance to anything you are told to do.. a blanket so thick, that you no longer can hear the music. If I'm injured, you'll hear me blaming only one person.. myself. It's acceptance of personal responsibility for my actions... a quality that's very much lacking in society these days."

Found it - pull out the "money tray" and the socket is above behind a little cover

Second dumb question - where can I get the right s/w to communicate with the car ?
Many thanks

Ford WDS is the correct software - only available to Ford Dealers.
However, any generic OBD II code reader should work.
