    It may be a stupid question - but how the hell do you set the clock in the speedo of a R171 280 SLK?
    The manual suggests you do it via the menu's - unless you have the command system (as that gets it's time from the GPS).
    Well - I've got the command system, and that tells me it has the correct time but the clock in the speedo (shown in the image) is now an hour out. The Date & Time option is not listed in the menu's from the steering wheel buttons - so I'm lost.

    ....or do I have to wait 6 months !

    Our 171 with comand has to be set manually in the service/system menu. There is a button on the left of the unit. Eventually you will come to the time/date option. Its possible yours is a later version and might be different. If it is then sorry but I dont know the answer.

    Mines a '08 car on a '57 plate - but it's pre-facelift so should be the same as yours. I'll take another look in the morning.

    Mines on a 55 plate and you need to use the audio booklet to reset the time/date which is how I did mine.

    Check that COMAND is set for automatic summer time and that the time zone is correct (they're options in the System menu somewhere).
