Do not under any circumstances leave any type of obd lead or reader attached to the connector when you are finished with it.

Mine has filled with water and electrolysis has removed 2 pins from my eas lead and damaged the connector :(

Bahhh

Sounds like you need to fix your water leak. Admittedly I know it's been pretty wet, to the point where I had an inch of water in the passenger footwell of my works 15 plate Renault Kangoo van, but cars shouldn't leak. Then either get a new cable or one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-OBD2-16-Pin-Male-Wire-Sockets-Connector-Plug-OBDII-Car-Adapter-J1962-OEM/311895498803. Might be worth replacing the socket too as that will be pretty well corroded.

It is indeed.
Just finding a weekend thats dry.
Its never been a problem until last weekend when I left that lead on it :(

Its leaking at the top of the plenum above the pollen filter. Wipers need to come off which will be fun as I dont think theyve been off since new.

I've already ordered a new one with cable attached. I'll just solder them and heat wrap the cable :)
