How do you change the clock and thermometer in a 1999 VW Beetle from 24 hour to 12 hour and from celsius to degrees?

There have been several instrux to this effect for 2000 Beetles, and it also works on 1999:

If your battery has run down, been disconnected, or replaced - your VW will reset itself to the default settings for the time and temperature. You will see the time displayed as military time where 6 PM will show as 18:00. You can set the clock to standard time (with the ignition OFF) by pressing both the H and M buttons. If you now turn the ignition switch to ON, you can press both the H and M button and the temperature will now display as Fahrenheit rather than celsius.

Update: this was just tested on a 1999 Beetle and it works.

20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit. 45 degrees Celsius is 113 degrees Fahrenheit. So 25 degrees change Celsius = 25 x 1.8 = 45 degrees Fahrenheit. 1 degree change in Celsius is equivalent to 1.8 degrees change in Fahrenheit.
