When in doubt, resort to the free NCAR's NCL language for this fix:
a =3D addfile("file.nc","r") ; read in file
var =3D a->var ; let's say var is (time, lat, lon)
var!0 =3D "time"
Time =3D (/0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10/) ; or Time =3D ispan(0,10,1) or... Time
=3D <some string>
var&time =3D Time
;write out to netcdf file
b =3D addfile("out_file.nc","c")
There are also other time fixes one may do.
