Connector for Clock

It coes ot of the dash board easily enoguh, but the wire harness dives down deep inside. Anyone know where it goes, and how to access it?

Try looking at this ... there's quite a few other threads on the subject.

look by defrost duct area, behind glovebox
remove clock by prying at left and rigtht side, snaps out
it is very easy to R&R

There is a 75 ohm 2 watt resistor that puts out lots of heat. I took it right off the board, and resoldered it so it was about 1/4 inch above, to cut the heat that gets to the board itself.
It is a pretty crude little power supply section , they use a voltage divider to take the 13 V or so down to 5 volts for the clock chip, and 2 volts for the display. Lots of heat is the result.
There were several solder joints that were obviously bad, but I had to resolder a lot more that that to get it reliable. If you have this trouble, just redo every joint in that quarter of the board, and it should be OK. If you have another 75 ohm, 2W resistor, install it so it is well off the board, and it should be OK forever..
While I was under the dash, I also fixed the fan speed resistor block. Low speed was out. I scraped the crud and corrosion off the end of the resistor wire as best I could, then buried it in the mound of solder that originally held it. I wouldn't call this a good soldering job, but it works!

As for the connectors, don't be too anal, cut the frigg'in wires and butt end connect them.
