tii clock in non-tii 02? opinions needed.

Recommended Posts

I have a spare tii clock.

Would you cut open a good condition dash to install a tii clock? I suspect I'd need to use a holesaw and drill a big honkin hole in the dash.

I'm leaning against it. Has anyone ever done this before?

Yea, I did it, but did not use the tii clock. I used a modern VDO 2" diameter clock in the stock tii location. It came out great!

I had to fabricate an angled spacer out of black PVC to take up the space between the face and the dash.

I don't have photos here at work, but I can take some if you are interested. Send me an email so I know were to sent the photos.

Good Luck,

I will take some photos and see if I can remember the parts. It has been a long time since I did it - 15 years or so.

If I do remember correctly, there is a depression on the backside of the dash cover that is in the same location as the tii. There already is a hole in the metal structure behind the dash itself.

I think I connected to the wiring from the instrument cluster for both constant power and lighting.

Good Luck,

i did it on my non tii 1976 dash.

there is indeed a cutout provided in the metal backing, so all you have to do is slide a exacto near where it supposed to be and follow the metal edge.

It's what the factory should have done....added a clock to all 2002s..not just Tiis and Tis....Not sure if I'd cut up a good uncracked dash to add a clock..I'd rather put in a newer radio that has a clock on the display..but if you do not have a concern with originality go ahead. The only thing I would not do though, is use a Tii clock...most of them do not work at this point....Search ebay and look for a modern clock or better clock in similar style to the 02s gauges...I'm sure another car make had something similar..

tii clocks, VDO Hollywood for one. They put in a new quartz movement, you do not get the customary "clunk" every minute or so.

You can pick up power off of the back of the gauge cluster, I forget which lug, but a little work with a DMV, you can find it. That is how the tiis pick up power.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
