Hi

I have a S3 with a clock that works but am unable to set the hands. When I push the adjuster in it does not seem to connect with anything, am I missing a trick here or is this a common problem?

Hi Sean

Tim is right I had a similar problem with my clock last year.

The clock does have to be dismantled and to get at it you need to remove the dashboard panel ! Quite an involved job but
look on page 3 of this section for more info under the heading 'Dashboard Panel'. P.M me if you need any more help.

Regards

Hi Steve

I think I will live with it untill the dash needs to come out for something more serious, must remember to wear a watch Grin

Hi Sean,

There is a small screw in the centre of the 'winder' which you can loosen to check out the spring underneath it.

I seem to recall that you can pull the winder to adjust the clock too, but our Fulvia is too far away from me to check this right now.  Huh?  Perhaps the winder isn't engaging the shaft?

But I wouldn't suggest removing the whole dashboard to get at the clock - just the veneer and the two black panels adjacent to the clock. Anyway, the clock fitted to our car is virtually a sealed unit - the silver bezel on the face is crimped over on the clock body.

Our clock can be set, but only runs intermittently even though the electrical supply is constant.  Roll Eyes

Regards,
Guy

Hi Guy, Sean.

My clock was 'sealed' as well but following Tim's advice I found it possible to ease the chrome bezel a little at a time with
a small electrician's screwdriver( all the way round where it is crimped) . The clock can then be dismantled, the cog which is operated by
the adjustment spindle had broken on mine and so wasn't engaging with the 'hands' cog. There are lots of cogs inside!!

I then carefully re-crimped (?) the bezel with a pair of long nose pliers with no damage and I think most of the chrome bezel is hidden by the dash panel anyway.

I only removed the wooden and black panels on my car but because it was such a tight fit and not wanting to crack the veneer I ended
up slackening the crash padding on top of the dash. It then came out 'relatively' easy.

I agree Sean, next time I would wait till I had to remove the panel for something else more serious.

Regards

Steve

I suppose you could disconnect the battery on the car and re-connect when the clock shows the right time!

I bump start my series 2 (black face) analogue clock. Three taps of the positive battery lead. I have had it re oiled but the bearings are so worn that it cannot start itself. These earlier clocks suffered from the lubricant drying up and stopping the clock also.
