Interior clock
#1
Is it anyone that have had problems with the clock in the console. The pin to adjust the time is loose. Can`t adjust the clock to the right time. Is it possible to fix and how?

The set shaft is held in by a small gear that is pressed onto the end.
In between the gear and the backing plate inside the clock there is a small spring and washer.
All three pieces should be floating around inside the case - don't lose them when you take it apart.

If got them...Where shall the washer be mounted on the axle? Gear wheel?  Which end of the gear wheel shall it be on the axle?

The washer goes between the spring and the gear.

When you pull on the shaft to make sure the gear is secure, aim it into a small cup to catch the gear, washer and spring if they weren't secure.

I have had the best success with 'peening' the end of the shaft.

I have never been able to get the knob and shaft out to polish the lens. How do you get it out?


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

the chrome knob actually unscrews, if i remember right, it lets go right before you think you're going to break it.

Try applying a little heat. Grab the shaft with small pliers
Like a hair dryer.

careful with the heat though, it will melt the lens, and yes small needle nose hold the shaft still (pull it towards you first and grab near the lens) while you unscrew the knob.

The trickier part is putting it back together.
If you screw the knob too tight it will be
harder to remove next time if needed.
Too loose and you can't adjust the clock,
just comes unscrewed.
