How do you set the clock on a BMW E46?

Is there a way to reset the clock on my BMW E46? I bought it used and I can’t figure out how to set the clock to my local time.

Congratulations on your new car! To reset the clock on a BMW E46, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your car and press the computer button located at the end of your left steering wheel stalk. You should see the time displayed in the instrument cluster when you do this.
  2. Change the time by turning the button on the right-hand instrument cluster. Turning the button to the left sets the time back, while turning it to the right sets the time forward.
  3. If you’d like, you can change the time from 12 to 24 hours by pressing the button once.
  4. When you’re done, turn off your engine and remove the key. Then, if you’d like, you can turn your car back on and check the clock.
