Hi,

The easiest solution is to insert a flat screwdriver blade under the sides of the 'clock - roof switch' 'panel' and gently rotate it. This will cause the panel to jump out of the retention arrangement.

Refitting is to simply press the panel into place.

The clock itself is retained by two side locating strips, into which the clock assembly fits. Don't forget to remove the power cable first, noting the orientation for refitting.

Of interest, I assume you have lost the display. In two instances I have repaired, it is due to some of the components on the clock pcb becoming disconnected. Have a close look with a magnifying glass, and resolder (with care) as required.

How do I brighten clock light it's very dim?


Is your clock part of radio assembly? There is usually a dimmer control for interior lamps, you rotate it to brighten or dim interior lamps--dome--instrument cluster--radio illumination. The same thing should work for the clock. If clock is part of radio assembly, I guess you can remove radio and dig into it, see if you find the wiring for clock illumination.

Battery problems


Well, something is on if the battery is dead. Pull the interior light fuse, and the clock fuse, disconnect the negative battery cable and put a 12 volt test light between the battery terminal and the cable...Likely it will light. Then pull fuses one at a time and observe if the light goes out. Keep disconnecting until you get the light to go out. Do not rule out the new alternator, stuff happens.

Radio and clock/interior lights are two different circuits. Check your fuse block to see if it has power.
