The panel around the clock is held in place by 4 clips .
All we have to do is prise it out using a wide thin steel lever.
Dont use a screwdriver unless you want to damage the dashboard.
It comes out directly towards the rear of the car.
You can then get to the bulb on the back without taking off the
wire to the heater , There is Just enough space to do this.
you need a small screwdriver to take the bulb holder out.

the clips are located - top and bottom, left and right or one on each side?

Which fuse to change for steering wheel lights and gear shifter lights 2010 ford edge

It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works

Stereo doesnt work in 2011 ford f250

The power for your radio and clock is controlled by the General Electronic Module (GEM), also known as the "body control computer". Thew place to BEGIN diagnosis would be to scan your onboard computer network (ALL modules) for possible fault codes.

Please note that generic OBD code readers CANNOT perform the functions that are needed to diagnose the body control systems.

1998 328i Clock/Date Stopped Working


Please take a good look at the display, it may work.
Often there's only yhe backlight of the display which doesn't work.
You only have to replace some small lamps behind the display module.

Kind regards,

you need to change your backlight globes, they are just little wedge globes behind the clock
