Analogue clock

I've recently bought one from E-bay :) It's the official Panda analogue clock that was fitted in the Super, 'S', and 4x4 models.

Now, I'd have thought it would illuminate when the sidelights are on. But it doesn't, and proves useless on an unlit road at night ;)

Over the holiday I might well take it apart and check if there are any bulbs inside, but I was wondering if any of you knowledgeable people here could tell me please? :)

Sorry Paul.

I've had no reason to go there, yet..

FWIW neither Haynes, or Porter, give anything terribly useful.

Do your light switches and heater controls light up, by the way??

They do on the '93 CLX (which has an illuminated clock), but not on the '90 CL (which doesn't have a clock).


Regards

John,

No problem, I was just asking :)

Thankfully, my heater controls and switches do light-up.

I wasn't aware you had the analogue clock on your CLX? [:0]

Thank-you grinni :)

I'll be checking it over the holiday with my Dad. I need to replace the sliding light switch, so whilst taking the dash apart, might as well do both jobs ;)

Greetings from England :)

Thank-you everyone for your help :)

I've fitted a new 12V 1.2W bulb in the clock, and it works [^]

In fact, it's been quite a productive day. We've cured the earth fault which prevented my indicators from working all the time (fitted a new earth from the back of the engine to the body), fitted a new dash light switch (original one had worn out B)), and we've also fixed the near-side sidelight problem. (Sometimes it would come on, other times it wouldn't. Turned out to be a poor connection in the bulb holder). Next up is an oil and filter change, and a set of spark plugs... :)

Too cold for that sort of messing about, Paul:)

:D

True, but it all needs to be done.

And it's nice to have lights and indicators again [:o)]

Previously, when the indicators wouldn't work, I had to switch off the engine, then instantly fire it up again, and then they'd work. This got a bit scary on the M5 at 60-odd mph [:0] But with the new earth lead fitted, all is well :)[^]:)

I bet the guy behind you on the M5 kept his distance after he'd seen two foot of flame come out of your exhaust, lol.

So much to do, so little time.... and Totally Skint!! :(

Did the clock fit straight in, or did you have to make up wires for it?

There was the black plug for it already in the dash, behind the blanking piece.

It was just a matter of unclipping that, and plugging the clock in. Then screw it in to the holes either side. Nice and simple :)
