Nope, just don't squirt any liquids in there but that's just common sense.

It's just a dust cover, but really you should have that on. It's easy to accidentally kick the socket getting in/out of the car given its location, and a broken OBD2 port is a no bueno situation.

Though if you look at the OBD2 cover, there are a few metal pins in it. What are they for?
