Water swooshing noise behind dashboard when cornering

Post by markathryn » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:27 am

I can hear water swooshing from side to side when cornering. My local mechanic has done several checks but is unable to resolve the problem. Anyone else had this problem on Volvo V70 2008?

Get under the car on the passenger's side, at the front edge of the door and look up for the drain hole.
Run a length of Aluminum wire up the drain and see if it is clogged.
