    Any M owners with problem analogue clocks not working or working intermittently can contact me to have them sorted. As anyone who has looked for a replacement will know, they don't come cheap as new units (£108 listed price on eBay UK - with a black bezel)
    I have a mate in the UK who can replace the entire clock with a brand new, genuine VDO clock, but will need your old clock to use the chrome bezel and do the re-fit. HE DOES NOT REPAIR THEM - HE REPLACES YOUR OLD CLOCK WITH A COMPLETE BRAND NEW OEM UNIT. The cost to you will be postage there and back, plus £.50 for the new unit and his time to do the bezel replacement.
    It is important to know that the replacement is identical in every respect to the OEM clock you have including the light bulb and power connection pins - plus the OEM screw on sleeve.

    Not all the gauges...just the tick-tock clock which has flumoxed M car owners around the world, and the cost of a new replacement deterred them... Other than the cost, there's also the issue of the chrome bezel... VDO doesn't do chrome anymore (sadly)...

    Hi

    Basically I sprayed mine with wd40 - literally drowned it through the bulb hole...

    Good luck
