Cooler temperatures and shorter days mean fall is finally here, and with it comes the end of daylight saving time. This year, we'll set our clocks back on November 5th.  If you've forgotten how to change the time on your Volkswagen, then don't sweat!

Refer to your owner's manual, especially if you're Volkswagen model is more than a few years old; it's always the best guide to any routine car maintenance.

However, you can also follow these easy steps to change your VW clock:

1.      Make sure the car ignition is on.

2.      Press "Menu" or "Clock" button located on your VW instruments.

3.      Locate the "0.0/Set" button on your instrument panel.

4.      Press the "0.0/Set" button to advance the time by one hour.

5.      Repeat step 4 until the hour is correct on your instrument clock.

6.      Press the "Menu" or "Lock" button. This will allow you to adjust the minutes on your instrument clock.

7.      Now, press the "0.0/Set" button to advance the minutes.

8.      Press the "0.0/Set" button until the minutes are correct on the clock.

9.      At this point, your clock should display the correct time. You don't need to press any additional buttons to exit this mode. 


When you adjust the time on your instrument panel, your Volkswagen will simultaneously adjust the time on your vehicle display screen. So, if you follow the above steps, you'll reset the time throughout the entire vehicle in just one take.
