      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 .

Replacing window regulator - Success!

Recommended Posts

I drive an 03 Chev Suburban, and had the driver's side window gradually quit working. Became slow up and down...finally wouldn't do anything.

Anyway, did an internet search for car window replacement and found a wealth of info from car folks. Determined it to be the window regulator that needed replacement, and that there were several online sources of parts, AND DIY directions with pictures included.

Bought the replacement part, it was delivered in a week, and with the online help gathered was able to take the old one out and replace with the new one in about an hour. Not too difficult, I'm just an average barely somewhat mechanically inclined person. Turned out I saved myself several hundred dollars doing this repair on my own.

If you get really bold you can repair the window regulator yourself like I have a couple times and really save some bucks.

What I have found on several vehicles is that the regulator is good but the metal cable that drives the window up/down has frayed and broken. You can disassemble the unit and replace the cable yourself with parts from a big box store for less than $5.

would the "regulator" be the same thing as the drive motor?

No, the motor is what moves the regulator which ultimately moves the window. The regulators responsibility is to move the window up and down in a uniform fashion so that it doesn't go up or down crooked in its tracks.

sometimes they can be purchased/repaired separately and sometimes they come together as one unit.
