OBD Port Cover Removal

I searched for information on this but came up empty. I apologize if this is redundant.

I'd like to plug a scan gauge into the OBD port to see if I can pull up ECT and EOT temperatures.

How do I remove the OBD port cover without breaking it?

Thanks- Mike

grim335: Pull straight back - toward the seat? I have put a lot of pressure on it and just keeps hanging on.

Thanks

Just pull it hard. If the cover breaks, is costs something like $2 at the stealer

Probably whoever refitted it before you did not align the 2 tabs up and jammed it in. As above just pull hard and should come off
