      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

power window motor

Recommended Posts

I have a 98 explorer and I discovered the driver's side power window doesn't work. The other three windows work. I checked all the fuses. Did the power window motor go out or would it be the switch? There is no noise when I push the switch.

Its probably the motor. Once the door panel is off it is very easy to see which one is bad. Backprobe the two wires that go to the motor one at a time. With the switch in the up position there should only be power on one of the wires. The same is true in the down position. If that is good than the motor is bad. To double confirm you can tap the motor with a screwdriver handle while pressing the switch in the up or down position (whichever way the window can go).

If there is missing power or power on more than one of the wires at the same time it is probably the switch.

thanks. I haven't checked on the price of parts yet. Is this a dealer only part or would a salvaged part work ok? Trying to save some money if part is spendy.

You could go used, just make sure it works before putting it all back together, I am sure there are after market parts made as well.

Be careful on the aftermarkets! There is a certain brand that is really bad especially with there reman products!!! I have no problem with used as long as you realize that the used one has some hours on it and may not last as long as replacing with new!
