Still hearing the sloshing noise, I mainly hear it when I am reversing and then when come to a stop suddenly or a bit quick, no clue what it could be, had a little shake of the car and can hear a liquid moving around that I never used to hear any ideas?

I find a second pair of ears (wife/partner/friend) very helpful in these situations. As you are able to produce the effect pretty much to order at least you have a flying start. Get him/her to move around the car as you rock it to better pinpoint roughly where it is then you can concentrate on that area. Maybe get him/her to sit in the back and front whilst you drive around to see where noise is more obvious. You do seem to have looked at all the obvious ones though. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be the fuel tank. My old Seat Cordoba used to be really bad for this when it was "not quite full". On the other hand, if this is where it's coming from, strange you haven't noticed it before? Maybe something has changed like the route you are driving?

Okay thatís a good idea will try that with my partner, I will have another look today as I did think the sound was going yesterday, just seems odd as the fuel tank seems like the only thing carrying that much liquid would be making that noise? Or could ther be something for else? Route is all the same I only ever hear it when I reverse really to park

You could try to run the petrol tank to very low to do a process of emimatinatiob. Find a place where you hear it defiantly like over a speed bump set near you. Run the car dry ish and then test. I know a bit of a waste of petrol but the hours u could be throwing into looking ...as they say time is money.
