Hi all,

For the last few weeks everytime I accelerate or brake I can hear a lot of water sloshing up and down the passenger side sill - has anyone else experienced this and if so how have you solved the problem?

Can't see how that amount of water would of got in there and why it doesn't evaporate!

Was thinking of drilling a hole to drain, can't see any grommets to remove? Probably missing something though.

Many thanks!

As no one posted I inspected further and thought I'd update this for anyone else who needed to know.

There is a drain plug on the bottom of each sill at the front just behind the wheel - totally missed this but it was clogged with mud and other stuff. Poked a pen through the hole and a fair bit of water came out solving my problem!
