      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 .

Honda Accord "Humming"

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Hoping someone can help me out here. I've been experiencing some issues with my 02 Accord EX V6. First off it started out with a wobble when slowing/stopping as well as some "humming". I replaced the rotors and front brakes and the wobble stopped. I still have the humming coming from the front right tire and now it's louder than ever and only gets louder with increased speed. What should my next options to look for be? Bearings? HUB Assembly? CV Joint? Any input is welcome. TIA!

When its making the noise and in an area you can do this safely steer to the right and left fairly aggressively. If the noise changes pitch or goes away than it is fairly safe to say that a wheel bearing is going bad. Usually the one that the noise changes when you steer that direction. Steer to the right and it goes away its the right, steer to the left and it goes away its the left. Or if it gets louder steering to the left than its the right bearing, if it gets louder to the right than its the left bearing.

To confirm this you can sometimes jack up the front of the car and spin the wheels by hand while holding the spring. If you can feel the noise in the spring than thats the bad bearing. Also sometimes they will get sloppy so you can grab the tire at the 6 and 12 o'clock position and pull/push in and out. If you feel play than it is bad.

If the noise never really changes that the other possibilities are tires (they can make noises that are really simular to wheel bearing howling type noises especially it they are chopped or cupped), axle shafts, or worst case something internal in the trans.

I shouldve mentioned that the tires are brand new as well.

Here's what I've discovered so far. I tried the steering from left to right and there is no change in the sound whether it's quieter or louder. It is definitely from the right front. I dont have a jack here that I can lift it at the moment seeing as the one that comes in the car is pretty much junk so I will have to try that at home later, but I'm definitely thinking it's a bearing....well actually HOPING it is lol. I would hope it's not the tranny seeing as it was replaced in Nov of last year. Thanks airjer I'll give your input a shot when I return home later.

Anyone know a good place to get this done around the metro area? I live in Otsego and work in Maple Grove. None of my contacts are able to do this seeing as you need a certain press to get the bearings out and press them back in. TIA!

Wow, I had no idea you (Drezler) were a member you punk. I hear someone did quite well on the big pond last weekend and it wasnt you lol.

Airjer - Champlin would work great actually. I'm heading out of town this weekend but could drop it off next week sometime. You have any idea what the cost would run? Approx? Thanks

I think it would be a good idea to have them listen to the noise first. Ride along with the test drive if you like to make sure they hearing the noise you want them to hear (I couldn't tell you how many times I have gone on a test drive and heard several noises and had to ask the customer if its that one or that one or that one). Once the noise is isolated than they will work up an estimate from there.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
