Removing clock

Postby tbeiler » Thu Dec 31, 2015 7:05 pm



Well, I'll start by saying that removing the clock was less difficult than I imagined. Once the 4 speaker screws per side are removed, the meter panel, (part 64240-MG9-771 PANEL, METER - '86A/I) pulls right out. All that is needed is to dsiconnect the connector to the clock before the complete panel can be totally removed. There was lots of dirt in there, so I gave it a good cleaning.
Switching in the new clock was simply done, one nut to remove from back of clock releases the the spring clip holding the clock unit into the panel. The lock mechanism to remove radio comes right out and only goes back in one way.
It was a bit difficult to put the panel back in with the windshield and the rubber dam in place, as I didn't care to break anything, so I removed the windshield and the supporting parts, then the panel slides right in. Good time to clean everything up as well.
I'll post a few pictures later, now Happy New Year.

I reckon you need really small hands to get in and remove those 4 butterfly nuts on each speaker - and it's a nuisance when you drop one either when undoing or doing them up to try and find them again - particularly the flat washers underneath them. :)
