This is for a 1983 240D.

The clock does not work. In past postings I have read that if you replace the two capcitors, that the clock will work again and that the capcitors can be replaced for about $1 from Radio Shack.

I took the clock into Radio Shack and we were unable to read anything on the capcitors. Could someone tell me the ratings of these capcitors?

This web page
has the instructions and specifies that the Radio Shack part number is 272-1028. My clock is also broken, but I haven't attempted the fix yet.

Did you check the 12V connector?

There's a 12V wire that plugs into the back of the instrument console that wasn't connected on my car. I plugged it in and voila I have the time.

You will need 100mfd with a voltage of at least 16v. I use the 32v, 100mfd.

It doesn't fail.
