During the Grandfather Clock Puzzle in Chapter 9 of Resident Evil 4 remake, you’ll have to play as Ashley and save a trapped Leon. This can be a confusing puzzle, as there’s hardly any direction given, and the solution is different depending on your playthroughs. Here’s where to find the times and how to solve it.
How to Solve the Grandfather Clock Puzzle in RE4 Remake
After getting the lantern as Ashley follow the hallways until you get to the area with the large antique clock door. The clock door is the exit and to open it, you need to set it to the correct time. However, the time needed to do so changes depending on your selected difficulty.
To find the correct time for the Grandfather Clock Puzzle in Chapter 9, head into the library until you find another clock on the second floor. Go to the opposite side of the room to find a desk with a lantern on it. Interact with the piece of paper on the table to get the clock time.
Clock Puzzle Solution Times
- For assisted or standard difficulty, the time is 11:04.
- For hardcore or professional difficulty, the time is 7:00.
These times work on both grandfather clocks in Ashley’s section of Chapter 9, and the Bunch of Keys item you picked up on the way is used for the treasure chest in the Mausoleum. It’s possible to skip right to the Mausoleum with the times now, though you’ll miss out on the chest without the Bunch of Keys.
And that’s how to solve the Grandfather Clock Puzzle in RE4 remake. If you’re looking for information on Resident Evil 4 remake’s puzzles, keep checking our guides page.
