92 100S Clock Adjusting - SOLUTION
Thanks to listers Craig Niederst and Mark Reis for the solution,
and for everyone else's suggestions.
The correct procedure was to PULL the dimming knob out, and then
the clock would begin to advance (analog clock). The owner's
manual incorrectly states to *push* the knob in - this doesn't do
anything with the clock. Having been born and raised in America
and also having learned German from an early age, I think someone
may have gotten confused while translating the manual. To this
day, I still sometimes confuse the German "drueck" and "zieh" with
the English equivalents of "pull" and "push".
Just another fun Audi/VW quirk I guess.
