Behind the covers to the rear of the front wheel arch you'll find the sunroof drain pipes on the ends there is a flap valve and these block up with silt resulting in the pipe filling up with water, you'll have to remove the moulding to the rear of the front wheel to remove the arch cover also, and replace the double sided tape which helps to mount it to the sill. There are also drains under the scuttle panel which block up with rubbish which accounts for the sloshing sound you can hear, you will have to remove the windscreen wipers and rubber strip plus a few screws with Torx (star) heads to remove this black plastic panel to gain access. It not a hard job just a bit fiddlely and time consuming but well worth the effort.
