      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 .

if you can jack up the car and crawl under with a long metal extension or something of that sort, have someone in the car and slowly bring the car up to speed. take the extension and place it on head bolt near the hub assembly, hold the other end up to your ear and listen for any ticking noises, should be nice and quite, i am a mechanic and have diagonsised many wheel bearings this way. if one side seems ok check the other side. but all in all if you can hear the noise and it goes away when turning on way and worse the other it is more then likely a wheel bearing. good luck.

Most likely the wheel bearing. Not always the case, but often I find that if it makes noise turning left its the right bearing and vise versa. Its fairly common on these cars. I've owned three of them for my daughters over the years and had to put at least one bearing in each of them

Sounds like the right front wheel bearing. Gets louder turning to the left goes away turning to the right.

The install is just that simple! I do recommend torqueing the axle nut after the new bearing is installed. Failure to do this can run the new bearing!! I also take the time to torque the hub to knuckle bolts as well.

185 ft/lb seems to ring a bell. The local library should have free access to ALLDATA which will have all the info you will need. Sometimes the directions in the box will also have specs for you.
