Ride: 2008 BF MKII 07 Upgrade XR6T

Location: Glen Iris, Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a 2008 BF MKII 07 upgrade XR6T, but there is no clock in it whatsoever. I'm assuming the clock in this should be above the middle air con vents in the triangular plastic cut out, as the car has the Territory premium sound screen, and has no space for the time. But as the car is an ex AFP vehicle, I believe when returning the vehicle back to factory original, they over looked the clock. I have a couple of questions; 1: From Ford, how much roughly would I be looking at for a new clock? 2: In Typhoons, they have 2 gauges sitting where my clock should be, is it possible for me to have the same set up, only one gauge for clock, and the other for boost?

Many thanks

you wont be able to have a clock and the gauges together, as they wont fit. The time should be displayed on the ICC, check that you have set the time?

My car has the same screen as you'd find in a territory ghia. It doesn't display the time on it now, and doesn't look like it has any room on it for the time. I go through the menu on the radio, and it has everything except for clock. When I picked up the car, I didn't realize it didn't have the owners manual. But if the time is supposed to display on the screen, I don't see why ford wouldn't put it in the radio menu? It doesn't matter now anyway, instead of the clock above the central air vents, my mate donated an SS inductions gauge kit, boost and oil pressure gauges

High series LCD ICC's in the Falcon don't have have the time displayed on the ICC. There is nothing to turn on or off in the settings. They had a dopey looking analogue clock on the top of the ICC.

Late Territory's with the high series LCD screen had the time on the screen. They had a small clock in the trip computer box on the lower right of the screen.

If you had a Territory ICC, then you would have the clock there. But to my understanding, these don't fit into a Falcon. So most likely, you just have a standard Falcon premo ICC. And there should be a plug for the clock at the top, should you find a clock.

Worst case, you can get the even dopier looking, and lots more expensive, FPV digital clock that sticks to the top of the windscreen, then you can have your dash gauges and clock all at once.

Late model Territory's have them in the ICC display.

It's something the majority of us would prefer to have. Unfortunately it's not a retro fit. :(

Cheers for the info guys. I've just decided to go with gauges. My phone always travels with me, as does my girlfriend, so if I need to know the time, it shouldn't be too hard to find out haha

FPV's got them too.

BF2's (And the matching terry) got a half-assed clock in the trip computer area of the ICC screen.

i bought one of the - as arm79 called it - "dopier looking" FPV digital clocks off ebay, paid way too much for it and I haven't even got around to installing it yet... :oops: :lol:

(and my ICC has the clock on the screen, which makes my purchase even stupider!!)
