    Default 306 Clock access

    The light behind the clock in Aleria seems to have gone to lunch.

    Not a serious issue, but the thought of Mrs P not knowing the exact time is somewhat scary.

    Can anyone guide me towards the procedure to remove the clock to access the globe(s)?

    Aleria is a 1999 306 XT with the fancy genuine fake Ukembeki wood dash panels.

    This happened to me a few months ago. Just pry open the fascia (not sure if your woodgrain one is different, but the bottom peice should come out easily) and then use a torx bit (star type screw bit, t15) to unscrew the 2 screws holding the clock.

    Take off the wiring loom, then there's 2 square bits that you twist to pop out, revealing the lamps. They're mini wedge types, around 2 x half cms, that you just pull out of the holders. My mechanic gave me some, so you could probably score some from a local garage or hardware store.

    Aleria will be seeing the time in, well, no time at all.

    Thanks for your input PP.

    I assumed that the clock itself was as you described.

    My thought was that someone could point me exactly to the spot I needed to pry to pop out the panel, or perhaps describe where the cunningly hidden screws were lurking, no doubt giggling hysterically to themselves something along the lines of "he'll never find us here!" (Or is that just me in need of medication?)

    I'm yet to have an opportunity to go and have a play. It'll probably all make sense after I've scratched a couple of panels investigating!

    From memory (it's been a few years since I owned my 306) the front faces (there are 2 or 3 sections) of the centre console bit does indeed just pry away. Just use a nice flat tool (like ruler or very small flat blade screwdriver). It just unclips.

    Under that, are the screws mentioned.

    I found a picture that may help

    Yup, its pretty easy to do (did mine the other week)

    one thing, the plastic surround is held on with metal clips. Make sure they are clipped on tight & straight (you will see what i mean) before pushing the panel back on, otherwise its a git

    Thanks Muchly Chaps.

    I can now see clearly where things are.

    My appreciation, and I'll proceed with the task just as soon as I can pry the keys from Mrs P!

    Once more we triumph over the powers of darkness! The clock and temp display are now fully functional again.

    Thanks for the help, gents. The panel does indeed pop out quite easily.

    Cheers, Pottsy.
