i dont believe you can. Its not that kind of backlit screen.

Also, is the toruble worth more than $25?

E34 OBC clock

IIRC the globe holder looks like a volume control on the rear of the unit. Quarter turn anti-clockwise and out it comes. Remove the radio, push the clock out from the rear. No fancy tricks.
