Water sloshing sounds

Post by Bren » Tue Apr 19, 2016 8:23 pm

I'm hearing a clear water rushing of sloshing sound when accelerating and braking. Sounds like it's coming from drivers side floor area.

I had the sunroof drain issue on the drivers side but that is now fixed and the carpet seems dry...

So where is this water and how do I drain it out?

You said you have done the sunroof drains, so hopefully it is just residual water. run the passenger seat full aft, remove the stereo amp, park so the passenger front is lowest, or jack left rear. get a wet/dry vac and suck out all the water you can. Maybe cram some towels in and pull them out.

1998 POS70 N/A: DD/training aid, 236k but really about 240k, I think...ABS module( passed on to son who sold it)
