Here are the items you'll need for this repair: trim tool kit from and flat head screwdriver

In order to access some of these parts, we'll have to remove this dash panel here. Fortunately, with this trim removal tool, available from we can get this plastic piece out without worrying about damaging any of the other interior pieces. All you've got to do is get behind it, and pry out. There's clips all the way along the side, so just keep moving up little by little, prying it out. Now we can slide this forward and access the electrical connectors at the back. All you’ve got to do is push down and release the tabs. Over here has got one of those red safeties which, actually, is another great use for this tool. Just pop that little tab out and release the connector. We'll move on to these ones up here. You have you ESP and hazard switch as well as the little electrical connection for the clock.

On the back of your clock you have two small little bulbs already in the sockets. To remove them you turn it counterclockwise with a flat blade screwdriver. Just jimmy those out, or you can just tip it and shake the bulb socket out there. Now these bulbs normally come inside of a new socket already, so you'll take the new socket, line up those tabs with the straight slots on the side here. Use that same flat blade, turn it clockwise. The same goes for the bulb over on the left here.

We can reinstall the dash panel into the vehicle. Now, it's a little bit easier to connect the bottom first. We'll start by reconnection the HVAC. All these connectors are different sizes. You can't really mix them up. Don't forget the little red clip that goes in the big connector here. Just slide that in, lock it into place and that keeps it from falling out. Reconnect the ESP and hazard switch at the top center and the light switch all the way at the top for our clock. Set the panel back into the dash. Just press around the edges until everything sits into place and everything is where it should be.

To reset your clock, it's very simple. Right now it's three o'clock even. Holding the button will get the clock to move. You can let on and off because it'll speed up as you hold it longer. Just a couple of taps and it's three o'clock.
