haha!! Good luck. Follow the guide and you shouldn't have any problems, just take photos as you go so you know where screws go back! I'll be keeping an eye out for progress!

DAH DAH !
That wasn't hard at all why do i worry over nothing

I did cheat as the clocks were already out of the car though, and i also managed not to drop anything it was the same as yours Gmac, one tiny tooth broken off the cog, had a look for it and it was on the pcb, how did it get there ? unless it was during the taking apart bit.
So all back together with a new cog installed and now waiting for new bulbs for the clocks, BLUE one's then its back in the car and see what happens !



Oh, i took a photo of the old cog and tooth too.
