Water sloshing around on passenger side - Clio Mk1!

I've got a Clio MK1 '94 -

Can hear water sloshing around on the passenger side (when going around corners and over bumps) - sounds like it's in the door sill and perhaps also around sunroof - any ideas on how to locate it and get rid of it? This has only started happening since it's been raining the last few days.

Also the boot has been leaking in water, it's been getting right under the rear seats aswell, anyone else had this problem?

Tried opening the front doors and giving them a little shake?
From my experience, doors tend to pick up water ingress, and sometimes the drain holes at the bottom get clogged.

Re: Water sloshing around on passenger side - Clio Mk1!

your drainage pipes from the sunroof are blocked.
its the end caps on the pipes, located in behind the splash guards that are blocked up with grit and gunk.
to get the water out of the floor, look under the car, look for round plastic clips sticking out of floor, punch up with hammer/socket to release trapped water under the foam padding.
try not to smash the plastic extensions of the floor plugs, as they are needed to lock them back into the floor.

have fun

Most 1994 Clios don't have sunroof drains.

My first check would be the drains in the windscreen scuttle - a very common problem.
