Replacing LCD clock

Post by Brunty »

One of the jobs I've been meaning to get round to for years is replacing the leaky clock in my daily. The lockdown we're currently in has been the perfect excuse...

So, looked like this -

Image

Remove the clocks and get to a nice clean bench. Photo of the back for refence.

Image

Remove the screws holding the assembly together - No 2 phillips. Undo the 7mm nuts under the speedo and behind the temp gauge. Remove the bulb from behind the clock. Gently prise the circuit off it's posts and pull the main plug sockets off the body. There is a plug going into the rev counter, a small watchmaker screwdriver will lift it out. And lastly unscrew the transistor.

Image

You can then carefully lift off the circuit "sheet" taking the centre part with it, and unplugging the connector above the speedo.

Image

What's left.

Image

Next, unscrew the clock assembly.

Image

Lift it off it's plug and undo the 2 screws from the back.

Image

And you're looking at the lcd panel you want to change. So open the new one up...

Image

It'll practically fall apart now, so carefully lay the parts out in front of you, remove the old panel and lay the new one in. It should come with some new graphite contact pads, so place them all in gently.
Image

Replace the screws as you removed them and refit the clock.

Image

Refit as you first found it and admire your work!

In case anyone is wondering, the clock is the same part as found in the T25 and is available at Brickwerks -
