Do you want to mount or remove a Smart Fortwo 450 watch? Do you have a problem with the clock delay?
Mounting – Remove Smart Fortwo Watch
Any of the variants starts with removing the small panel on which the damper button is located. After trying several tools, it looks like a simple windscreen squeegee is very good for removing this panel and does not scratch the items.
The squeegee presses and rises in the forward direction until the panel breaks out of the clamps.
With a Torx wrench 10, the 3 screws that hold the clock fixed on the dashboard are dismantled.
To remove the wires with the plug, you need to undo the two screws on the sides that hold all the semicircle frame attached to the board. Then the plug goes out and the clock is completely removed.
Missing the picture in which the plug is plugged into the small panel with damage. It’s easy and by the shape of the plug, you can easily connect and disconnect the clock jack. Until here you have all the mount and disassembly of the clock. No Star activation is needed to make the clock work.
Removing the clock body
Once the watch has been removed, remove the main circle by pulling it directly.
The next circle, which contains the protective glass, will only come out with the use of a screwdriver or a special utensil of plastic panels forcing the mages.
With two fingers, gently pull those indicators.
The indicator dial comes out with a slight sharpening, using those small holes.
It’s time to see the electronic plate with the watch engine. On the sides there are two clamps that must be removed and the plate released.
The two rear buttons are the ones that make the clock set, remember to mount them.
Several connecting legs can be seen on the board. Everyone must be checked and it will be hard to see the defect.
Due to the vibrations of the car, these legs lose those joints/connections. In the picture below one can see how one of the legs was still in contact, and there was a delay in the clock.
For safety, the bindings were reinforced on each foot and then the clock was mounted on the dashboard.
In this case, the clock lost about 10 minutes every 24 hours. After all the operation, it did not “lose time” at 5 days. 🙂
