Angry ML W163 diagnostic socket

Please can someone out there tell me where the diagnostic socket is on my late 2000, M-Class, 320ML, W163, (uk W reg)?
What type of connector it has, OBD, OBDII, EOBD, 38 pin etc?
I wish to purchase a code reader/resetter as i live out in the sticks, 30 miles from nearest garage with correct equipment?
My brother was recently sold the wrong one for his Renault Laguna & it wont fit, & i do not wish to make a similar mistake.
thanks to all in advance.

The OBD II socket on the US version is on the drivers side, between the pedals and the steering column. It should have a cover on it. A flashlight helps when you are looking for it.
