      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 .

94 Ford Taurus Fuel Pump Access?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if you can access the fuel pump from under the rear seat in a 94 Taurus sedan? If so, how does one remove the back seat to get at it? I am pretty sure I am just going to have to jack it up, drop the tank, and work in tight spaces, but it would be awesome if there were an access point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You are correct, you will need to jack the car up and remove the fuel tank to replace the pump. Also remember to replace the fuel filter along with it! Good luck!

Is the filter inside the tank as well? I had to siphon out about 6 gallons of gas today, so that took most of my afternoon. Got 4 gallons to go no problem but then it lost the siphon and I couldn't get it to keep running again, so out came the mini bulb. I am going to pull the tank down tomorrow morning and get working on it. What a fun project. Shoulda just paid someone to do it.

I never figured out why some "genius" engineer never thought to design a small cover insider rear trunk or under rear seat to access the fuel pump. I wonder which college they went to ?

I had a VW Convertible once and it took 15 minutes to replace the pump, same as a BMW. I bought a Saab for my son and I cut the opening myself... for the next time.

I was pretty sure that was where the filter was. I just wanted to make sure I didn't hang the tank back up before changing it and have to do it over again. I haven't yanked the tank yet. I wish I had the wrench for the pump retainer, but my buddy did one a couple years back and made do with a block of wood and a hammer.
