      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 .

Wind Noise 08 Ford Escape.

Recommended Posts

My wife has an 08 Ford Escape, she loves the car but everytime I'm in it I notice a lot of wind noise. She says she doesn't even notice it but there is significantly more in her car than mine. Anyway, is there any aftermarket things I could do to decrease the wind noise??? Never heard of anything or seen anything but you never know I guess.

Exactly, bring it back to the dealer, take them for a ride and point out the noise, if it is considerd abnormal they will fix it. Some vehicle lines just have more road noise then others and there isnt a fix.

That's kind of what I was thinking is that its just the way the car is put together, but didn't know if there was "better" stripping or something that could be done....I guess a trip to the dealer couldn't hurt.

They haven't replaced a door or anything on it by a chance? Probably not being it's an '08..

But I just replaced a door on my '99 Silverado and I have noticed a lot of wind noise.

No its been since we bought it...didn't really notice during the test drive but doing more research it seems to be the biggest complaint about this car...like I said, my wife doesn't seem to mind and it is her car so I was just seeing if we could tighten it up a little bit.

4.W.E. said what is needed to be done.

If it is a design issue, they will have a T.B.S. that will say how to fix it or if it is normal. If it is a repair with your particular vehicle, point it out on the test drive with the advisor or tech. and they will fix it.

Turn up the radio!! laugh

Seriously though, on my 83 Park Ave, it is amazingly quiet. I get in my wifes 2000 Grand Caravan and it seems like I can't hear myself think, I think some are just louder than others.

it might be the seal right next to the window on the back of the door, if you try to push it in and it moves, pull it out a little way and silicone in behind it, then tape it tight to the door till the silicone seats (like 1/2 a day) I had the same problem on my 02 Explorer

    • I was out last nite----7 inches of ice
    • Man wouldn't I love to have a nice F100!   Years ago had a PU from Ford with that rock solid, dependable straight six! What a piece of work. I traded if off and the fella I traded it to did the same and it went through a bunch of owners. And the last time I saw the carcass of the thing it rigged to big saw (24" blade) and was being used to cut firewood and slabs for cabins. Hell, it may still be running!!
