analog clock issue

Hi - I've noticed that my analog clock in my 08 G35x has started to move faster than normal. It seems to be moving about 2-3 minutes faster per hour. I'm constantly adjusting the time but it's not helping Anyone ever experienced this and do you happen to know a fix for it? Thanks in advance!

Since it's actually a digital clock (made to look analog), I'd say you're going to need to replace it. Try ebay or a local wrecker.


EDIT: here's a quick find on ebay. It's for the whole assy, but the clock part should be removable and common among most V36 models.
(the clock portion alone runs about $300 new)

It's more than likely your flux capacitor. Every time you go over 88mph you actually start to move forward thru time - hence your clock moving forward...we know you've been driving too fast now.

Question? If everyone had digital clocks, will the words "Clockwise or Counter Clockwise" disappear? Gary
