  1. First, pry the trim up from around the shift lever, lifting straight up. Then, pull the fan speed knob out from the dashboard. Remove the screw from behind it.

  2. You'll need to carefully pull the whole instrument cluster out of the dashboard. The plastic clips circled in red are what is holding it in, so carefully pry there. A putty knife or other thin blade may help.

    • There are little plastic tabs that hold the clock into the dash panel, so pull them back a little to release the clock. Remove the electical connector by pressing the tab on the side of the connector.

    • Pry up the black tabs, 2 top and 2 bottom, to release the face of the clock.

    • Find the 5 black devices on the circuit board. Here they are labeled 270, 510, and 3 at 181. These are what need to be resoldered.

    • Carefully remelt the solder at each end of each device. You probably don't need to add any solder, and you don't want to make any solder bridges where they shouldn't be.

    • You can now plug the clock back in and see if it works. If so, put it all back together:

    • Snap the clock back together, and back into its place in the dashboard.

    • Snap the dashboard back in place. Put the screw back in behind the fan knob. Put the fan knob back in.

Wow; that was incredibly easy. Toyota dealer service wanted $150 to repair this (on my 200K+ miles Corolla). Took me 15 minutes. I especially appreciate the instructions to soder and fix the actual clock; I would have replaced the part but your repair advice worked.

Those black boxes looked like they still made contact, but with hardly any solder. I added a tiny bit of solder at each end of those boxes, and so far it appears to be working.

I also added a bit of dielectric grease on the wire clip.

My clock was fading in and out, then it was off for quite a few days. I was looking for info on replacing it when I came across this post. It only took me about 20 minutes start to finish, and it solved the issue. One thing to note, you may have to take the car out of park to the dashboard panel out and back in. Make sure to engage the parking brake first!

I performed the same fix and it worked great, but now the clock is on all of the time, not sure why though. Thanks!

I meant to ask, how can I fix it now from being on all of the time? Thanks again.

I would check to make sure a solder bridge did not get formed during soldering. Some of those components are really close together. I know when I did the job, a bridge did occur, but I got it cleaned up on the bench, so I didn't have a problem after re-installing the clock. I now have to use a lighted magnifying glass to insure I get the soldering done correctly.
