Default '05 A4 clock - can it be set to 12 hour from 24?

Also, what may appear to be a really stupid question, but does the rear wiper washer of the Avant get replenished when you fill the reservoir under the hood? I couldn't find otherwise either on the car or in the manual.

Thanks, guys!
cheers,
Jim

Don't believe time display layout can be changed. Also I have a B7 Avant and don't know of any other reservoir; I only fill the standard windshield washer in the engine bay.

Not sure about a B7 but a B6 '05 can be set to 24hr. Washer fluid shares a tank front and rear but I believe each has its own pump.

I haven't found a way to change it. I have an 04 and there was no info in the manual on how to change it. Let me know if you do find a way, I'd be interested.

I believe the 24hr clock can be change via vag com coding the cluster to a different region, however sometimes it will change other aspects like changing the temp display from F to C and odometer to miles instead of kilometers, if you research it you can see what the different coding values do to the cluster IE 12hr clock with metric display and such

here I searched it for you

http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...E5/8H7)#Coding

altho it doesnt tell you what they all do, remember your original coding and you can experiment with it

Yes it can be changed on the B7 through the cluster menu, on the B6's it is through Vag-Com coding.
