Re: How to fix Clock for a 240Z???

Don't get that digital. Here's how to fix the current one. Take it out of the car. Take it apart and gently with a Q-tip clean around all of the spindles. Careful not to leave and fuzz. Then, get a tooth pick, dip it in some three-in-one oil and apply the oil to the spindles. Next, hook the clock up to a battery and watch it run. I've never seen a bad clock motor, they just get dust in there that stop them. You should see a little plastic plug in the back of the clock housing this is the second adjustment. BE SURE to NEVER touch the little screw that adjusts the seconds. If you do, you'll have to spend a few days with the clock running in your house, making small adjustments until it's right again. Any problems you run into post another message and I will help.
