Here are the instructions I found and used on my 2004 Ody clock....

1. Here's the part you need to buy, Radio Shack part #272-1092. Despite Radio Shack's rip-off prices, this was only $1.49 for two micro lamps.

2. Disconnect the battery. Personally, I don't believe this step is necessary, but you can do it to be on the safe side.

3. Put on the emergency brake. With the engine off, shift down it into the lowest gear to give yourself some clearance.

4. Remove the panels to the left and right of the steering column. WEAR GLOVES! I found it easiest to start from the side closest to the steering column and pull from there. If you notice in the picture, I also removed the cap that covers the hole where a button is supposed to go. Use that hole to pull, too.

right side removed

5. After you remove the left and right panels, you need to remove a total of 8 sc2001vdyssey - cant see time in dark - dscn2233sm.jpg

2 behind the left panel

2 above the gauge cluster
6. Once those screws are removed, the top panel can be pulled out2001vdyssey - cant see time in dark - dscn2240sm.jpg the gauges is the hardest to remove. Just be careful with the plastic panels and work your way from the sides.

top panel removed

7. Behind 2001vdyssey - cant see time in dark - dscn2241sm.jpg you'll notice two wires that connect to the hazard li2001vdyssey - cant see time in dark - dscn2242sm.jpg You can unplug the clock easily, but the hazard light requires a small screwdriver to release the lock.


8. Remove the plastic housing that covers the clock. The lamp is located on the top left of the circuit board. It removes with a simple twist.


9. And after ALL that work, you can finally replace the lamp. I wish I took the picture with a penny to show a size comparison. It's a shame it requires all this work to get to a tiny lamp.


10 Replace your panels and screws and you're all done!!

How replace a dash clock light in 2007 kia optima lx the clock works but it is very hard to see the time

I don't know how to access the clock - just wanted to suggest the clock might be ok and just need a new bulb in the backligher. This applies to lcd and ordinary clocks. Led clocks are self illuminating and are often too bright for night use so there is usually facility to reduce the brightness of the display either when the car lights are switched on or when it grows dark via a photo transistor. Before junking the clock it is worth checking the ground and supply voltage...

Old m reg escort 16v interior red light on clock stays on - ??

sounds like the clock is wired to the +12v from the stereo instead of ILLUM from the ignition, this light should only come on with the headlights... Connect the wire from the clock bulb to ILLUM on the stereo wiring - I cant find an escort manual so youll have to find which wire is clock power and which one is clock lighting, nedless to say you leave the clock power and ground as they are - just cut the lighting wire and attatch it to the ILLUM for the stereo with a crimp or block connector. ...
tape up everything you leave disconnected.
now the light will only come on with dipped or beam lights, not just all the time on its own.

I want to replace to dash clock in my 2005 subaru forester, the clock works but the light is out and you can not see it when its dark

The entire assembly housing the clock and upper storage compartment pops out. With a butter knife of thin flathead screwdriver simply insert at lower leaf or right side of assembly. Use a little force to pry up and the side of the assembly should pop. Repeat on the other side, remove assembly. From there, you should have access to the standard auto illumination bulb.
Let me know if I can assist further.

Clock inside car, mitsibishi carisma, works but the backlight doesnt work. hence cannot see clock in dark

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?
