2006 Honda Civic Question: OBD2 port is loose

Went under the dash to put in a odb2 scanner plug to check codes. Turns out the DLC(as honda calls it) or odb2 port is loose. So whenever I try to give pressure to plug in, it would tuck inside, making it impossible to reach. What should I do? -
Answer 1
There are two Philips screws holding that DLC...just screw it to the holder. -
Answer 2
if the retainer tabs are not broken , get a light and get under the dash and snap it back in the holder. If the tabs are broke you can use a second hand (if available) to hold it , while pushing the connectors together. Trim panels may need to be removed, snap off carefully (may have one or two 'twist-locks'). -
