    Thanks. Found it. I could not even make out the symbol on the plastic to see what was behind it.

I have a 96 TDI (diesel) passat. The Connection is in front of the main dash board just in front of the wiper "hand" You need to pull a little piece of plastic tha has a tiny "speaker" looking grill on it. Be careful when you pull this out not to bust the wiper selector handle...

Where is plug for scanner


i should probably know this since i used to work at a vw dealer but we didnt do many old passats. i know that the old jettas had it hidden behind a small piece of plastic near the radio/heater controls. 96 and up vehicles are supposed to be obd2 thought, and one law of obd2 vehicles is that the connector must be under the drivers side dash, and visible from the left front corner of the driver seat.

I need to know the location of the code scanner hookup in a 2003 VW Passat


All of the scanner ports on cars are required to be within a certain distance of the steering wheel. Typically they are not far under the steering wheel. Look for a cover if it is not clearly visible from under the dash.
OBD2 scanners will scan the engine components only...which is useful. If you want to read all your VW systems, you will need a VAG scan tool. You can find them for $50.
Good Luck!
