The OBD2 socket should be under the driver's dash. The 38 pin socket is designed to mate with proprietary MB diagnostic equipment. No "adapter" is needed to read the OBD2 codes. The is a "break-out" connector for the 38 pin socket that allows easy access to the pins for people who wish to use a VOM or Oscilloscope to conduct specific diagnostics on a particular component.
