      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 .

00' blazer jimmy moonroof sunroof??

Recommended Posts

Bassboy1645

While hysterical me was laughing at my buddies green face after a fart the moonroof sunroof he was openeing sounded like a snap or a crack and then jammed open. It goes forward to close for about an inch or so then hangs up. it goes back an inch or so and hangs up. or so it sems like its hanging up. in the interst of not spending money id leave it be except its extremely annoying goign down the highway even with the top sliding interior panel closed. A guy at the dealer( who I thought was being kind of a jerk) told me that theyd have to look at it and it would cost money and id have to make an appointment. He offered no thoughts or possible costs or scenarios for what might be the problem without lookign at it( hence the negitivty). Any ideas??

Get in touch with a body shop. We send all our sunroof work to a couple of shops near by.

Bassboy,

Sun roofs are a pain to work on. I would try to get closed and never use it again, if you do not want to spend any money.

The dealership/garage will most likely charge a check out fee because it takes time to tear into a sun roof and figure out what’s wrong. They figure, if you bail on repairs they need to recoup some money for the tech's lost time. Hence, no mechanic works for free, unless it is the in-laws vehicle! You also will have to make an appointment, because if garage or dealership has someone who can work on it, they are mostly booked up for the day, because of pre existing appointments for other customers. Some times they are just letting you know the facts and not being mean. Also a dealership or garage is not the Red Cross! When they give out free info, it goes against the grain of the workings of a shop (hence they are their to make money). IMO

I like to give out free info on FM, because I like to help my fellow FM'er. I help and give out more info than I ever would in dealership service isle. In the dealership, it will cost ya! Here I am a nice guy!

Sounds like track broke, because it moves a little bit!

It will not be cheap to fix! I would shoot out a price of around $300-$600. $1200 plus could not be out of the question!

Good luck!

Yep, pretty much what Airjer said. In our shop, if someone has a sunroof problem the guys all run like mad. Some sort of major dislike. But the thing is with sunroofs is the module or track mechanisim is very expensive. Not a lot of servicable parts. I checked the GM part and it's over a grand. Good luck!

Airjer and Dan,

You guys are correct! I have only worked at 2 dealerships that would work on them. It takes a guy with thin arms and small hands! grin.gif

Another option is to try Dealer Automotive Services in Hopkins. One dealership I worked at would sublet out to them.

Thats funny Dan! Those tickets will sit on the counter all day long!!! I can't believe they want a grand for one of those.

Shack, we send quite a few customers to DAS. They are a good bunch of people. Mostly send them those aftermarket a/c's on those conversion vans. Those can be a real pain!! Wait for the parts, the parts show up, wrong parts sent, wait for more parts, parts break removing the broken parts, order more parts, more wrong parts sent, well you get the idea! confused.gif

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.
