My scan gauge wasn't working like it normally does, so I giggled the connection and found that the diagnostic connector is loose. The screws are tight, but the connector is loose. Any suggestions on how to repair this.

I have noticed the same thing especially during logging over a long trip. I will lose connection and would have to jiggled the connector and reestablish VAGCOM. So far I haven;t seen this while using my UltraGuage - probably less cable / connection stress (No hanging Cable). This summer when it warms up, I plan on taking the lower dash piece down and taking a better look to see if I am missing anything.
