    I got my new ScanGauge II and found the OBD connector but it has a plastic cover, I can just touch it as my truck is in the garage and its -5 outside. Hate to back it out just to see the entire port. Does that cover just pull straight off or is there a catch on one side I could see IF my vehicle door was all the way open??

    The cover should just pull straight off

    Tried pulling it off and it would not budge, so maybe its just cold and I should try harder?. I did not want to break it... If it was warmer I'd back it out and crawl under the dash.

    It'll pull straight off. Try wiggling it a bit.

    Got it. Acts like its never been off before?

    Impressed with the looks of the Scangauge out of the package, looks to be very heavy duty. To darn cold to work on it today and I get my first Covid shot tomorrow, that will be fun.

    You could always drive your truck and crank up the heat in the cab. That should make the cover a little more pliable.
