There are a few ways to change the time in your Subaru Forester.
The easiest way is to use the car's clock or timer. To use the car's clock, find the "clock" button on the center console and press it. The display will show the current time. To use the timer, find the "timer" button on the center console and press it. The display will show how much time is left until it reaches a set point (usually 10 minutes).
If you don't want to use either of these methods, you can also change the time using an electronic accessory such as an iPhone or Android phone connected to your car via Bluetooth or USB cable. Just search for "time change" on Google or Apple App Store and install one of those apps onto your device. Once installed, open that app and select "set time." You'll then be able to enter your new time into seconds (or hours if you're changing it back).
Finally, if you'd rather not mess with any of those methods at all, there's always manually changing the time by turning around inside your vehicle and looking for a small knob next to where your gear shift sits (usually near 12 o'clock).
