Mazda MX5 I am looking for the OBD 11 port on my MAZDA MX5

Customer Question

I am looking for the OBD 11 port on my MAZDA MX5 2001. It is a Jap import to New Zealand so RH drive.
I am beginning to wonder if it has an OBD 11 port. I see a diagnostic port under the hood.
On the net I see others are having the same problem locating it.

You don't have an obd2 port on it, just the under bonnet data link connector.

OBD 2 standard requires an OBD2 port to be within 30cm of the steering column - but as I said you don't have one.
