How do i reset the clock in my car?

I know this sounds idiotic but i tried once to do what it said in the manual and i can't change it properly...i only got the minutes to change and not the hour. Can anyone suggest how to do it?

thanks

None of the "hold these buttons" tips work for my car or my friends bimmer, so disconnecting the battery or pulling a fuse is the only way the clock allows us to change time and then the buttons work as they should. Kinda strange but works the same every time change.
