I know this sounds like a really dumb question but where the hell is the clock in my 1998 Outback? I can't tell if it's suppose to be in the gage cluster and it's just burnt out or what. It seems weird to me that subaru wouldn't incorporate something as simple and useful as a clock in there late 90's outbacks.

It has the 6 disk with tape deck and there's no clock display option that I can find on it.


check your radio display

a picture would help, are you saying there is no radio?

If there is a radio.
There should be a button marked "Display" or "DISP"

Try pushing it.

The factory clock was incorporated into the radio. The 6 disc changer you have is not the original radio for a 98, so there may be no clock.

The factory 6 CD player I have mounts
below the factory radio.

Unlike the McIntosh in my VDC, which is all one unit.

What he said.

In my 97 OB, the clock was in the radio. The 6 CD changer unit they brought out in the early 2000's does not have the clock, as they put a clock display into the dash. Someone has retrofitted. (I've done exactly the same thing.) It's also the reason you no longer have a pocket under the radio. The original radio/tape unit was single DIN. The 6 CD changer/radio/tape unit is double DIN. (Do you have the Subaru Panasonic P123 unit? Just curious. There was also a later unit, but I don't know the number on it.)

I've got a little clock mounted just above the vents. Works for me.

What Commuter says and to add pictures = kwords.
My 97 OB is two stacked single DIN units
(as he says - no pocket)
and my clock is still in the radio display.

I wasn't saying or didn't mean to imply you were wrong,

I was mearly pointing out that
there are other 6 CD changers configs
that were factory Subaur units.

Sorry if you took it that way.

No problem. My response was for Pooparu. I'm just trying to point out that the single all-in-one units (at least the P123) do not have a clock. No worries.

Here is an image of the radio in my Outback. I don't see any way of switching the display to show time. I just think that maybe this specific configuration of stereo and model year of car didn’t come with a clock. Which seems very weird to me.

Yeah, thats the newer model changer, no clock, you'll probably have to fit one somewhere on the dash or somewhere

do you think that someone put it in or that the factory did it?
