Hello all,

Anyone can tell me how to set the mechanical clock on the dashboard to the correct time in an E320 CDI of 2006? The car has a command!:confused:

Thanks & regards

Robert

I think there is a screen on the computer on the dashboard. Once you have set it, it will adjust for "the clock changing" automatically. It would be interesting to try leaving it until the clocks go back - it might fix itself.

It doesn't on the E for some reason, it will however keep perfect time once set.
The way to set it is as per Malcolms advice.

I bought my car in May this year and the clock has been 1 hour slow since then, I haven't really looked into it but I was hoping for the same solution at the end of October.:Oops:

Hello to every one,

It took some time but luckily I could adjust the clock in my 320 CDI. The problem now is that the clock can be adjusted only in block of one or half hour! In other words it can not be adjusted by minutes (less than 30 minutes)! Any idea about this? :confused:

Regards,
Robert

This is odd, have you tried it in the 24 hour and 12 hour settings

Well Malcolm, I did not try it but I will do tomorrow. I am afraid that MB adjust the minutes via Satellites and left only the one or half hour block margin for different geographical locations! If this is correct then it is really bad. I always like to have my watch few minutes ahead but this will not be possible anymore! :roll:

Regards,

Robert

You can imagine I have to deal with 3 languages: English, Dutch (the language used in the car) and German (the language of the user manuals)! :mrgreen:

Good & bad news

There is a good news and that is: I could download an English copy of the COMAND Operator's Manuals 320 CDI. The bad news is that it say: by satellite reception using arrow up/arrow down you can change the time by 30 minutes. Without satellite reception using arrow up/arrow down you can change the time by 1 minute. I have no idea where can I go with the car on this earth to find a place without satellite reception! :confused: :twisted: :shock:
