AUTOMOTIVE OBDI II  -  IDENTIFICATION OF TYPE OF DIAGNOSTIC PORT

I have a 1995 Subaru but it may have the port that became standard in 1996.  Before i buy a reader, I want to make sure of what there is to read on this car.  It has a port that's located behind a little panel that's on the lower side of the dash panel, just inside the driver's door.

Can someone tell me how to look at this port and decide if it's compatible with the current system?

Maybe an exact physical measurement, or counting the number of contacts, etc?

Thanks.

Michael, thanks for the info.  As an off course non-binding opinion, do you think that the presence of Subaru in that chart from California means that the 1995 is OBD2 compliant?  And coudl it be that this is just for cars shipped ot California?  Soon I will go down to car and try to match up the chart against what it's got.


Thanks, Lewis.
If it has the OBD2 port it must be OBD2 compliant.
