Display Clock removal

Postby DizZee » Thu Sep 13, 2012 5:26 pm

Hey!

Sorry if this has been answered before, I did a search but turned up nothing.

Was wondering how I remove the display clock from a 2004 Liberty.

Thanks!

i found some info on this a while back when mine was playing up, but i cant dig it up again.

its very easy though, get a flat head screw driver and a cloth, wedge it in gently with a cloth (so no marks) on each side and simply pop it out.

you just need to un-clip 2 plugs (storage compartment light on top and the display connection on the bottom) and its done.

troubles with the display?

I have the same problem, the clock display doesn't work. Occasionally it turns on for a little bit and then turns off again, its a common problem isn't it? Dodgy solder jobs on the back?

yeah very common. if you have very basic solder skills your can easily fix this issue. just a matter of re-soldering a particular component on the circuit board.

i did this a few months back and its been perfect ever since.

This seems to be the most conclusive thread I found after a quick search, I was bought to it through a search on here FYI, the writeup was just held on the members home forum.

its tricky to get to (need to un-solder half of the clock display panel), but if you attack the part ive circled, that fixed mine right up !

Mad shut out to all the original posters above. 6 Years later and the knowledge dropped still helps! Soldered the R4 and working fine on re-install, time will tell. Seems the bright button is now no longer working but I probably butchered the board a bit when i soldered it.
My advice, just dollop a bit of solder on the R4 at each end, don't try and reheat the factory solder, it will just fall off and be a pain in the ass to get back on.
And anyone searching to get the clock out.. you need to remove the whole air vent section. 3 clips at the top and whole unit will come out.. use tools or the butter knife with rag that has been suggested somewhere.
Again, thanks to all. Saved me a $100 AUD for new clock, or $500 at the subaru dealer!!!
