Since the Golf Bavaria Mini Build Thread has pretty much run it's course I felt like us e3 owner's should also have a thread dedicated to the misc. on-goings of our builds. The on-going maintenance of our breed so to speak. LOL. I thought I would start it off with the removal of the speedo and clock. As we all know the clock in the e3 is very different from the clock in the e9. Both placement and design. It can be a tricky little bugger to pull out. It seems straight forward by removing the veneer, unscrewing the plastic nuts behind the veneer and clock, pull it though the back and viola right? Well, not so fast. A lot of times they get caught somehow under the metal portion and the dash and get wedged or hung up in there. This was the second time it happened and of course one should never force anything like this right? Especially a clock with glass and a bezel etc. With some careful prying up on the metal portion and a small flat-head screwdriver to press the side back in eventually it came out undamaged. Be careful, have a little patience, and just know you may need to do a little finagling. The speedo needs to be re-calibrated and the clock didn't keep time first go of rebuild so I'm debating on putting a modern quartz-back in (just the back part not an entirely new clock). Notice the LED lighting that fits right in the dash stock inserts around the gauges and the smaller ones that fit right in around where the clock gets lit up. They are nice, only thing to remember is to make sure the negative and positive correspond.
