Re: water slopping

Are you sure the sound is coming from the engine compartment as the sills are known to get water trapped in them in the Megane so it could be a similar problem with your Clio and it is worth while checking behind the front wheel arch liners just in case it's all clogged up with muck as it's a common fault on a lot of Renault's and causes the water from the roof drain pipes if you've got a sunroof to build up and seep out else where and check the under neath of your sills for rubber bungs and pull them out to check for trapped water or if ignored it will seep out into the foot wells of the car lol ..

Re: water slopping

Inside the doors is another place. I let a couple of pints out of one of ours after the car started to sound like a fishtank on wheels.
