Fiat Punto My Life 2011 - Water noise

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me..

I've owned my Punto for about 3 months now and the past few times i've been driving it i've heard a water noise coming from the left hand side of the car. It sounds like it slushing around when i just set off and go into reverse.

I've tried shaking the passenger door around to see if theres water trapped inside but i couldnt hear anything.

I was wondering if anyone knows what this could be, i dont really want to have to take it to Fiat so i've come on here first.

Hope someone can help me,

many thanks,

James.

Welcome to the forum! Have a look in the bulkhead area - where the wiper linkage sits - as the drains usually block up with leaves.

I'm not technically minded so forgive me, but I've got fluid-filled bags under the bonnet stuffed in the offside wing, it might have them on the near-side too, I've never checked. I've no idea what they're for, but I have heard a 'sloshing' sound when breaking hard with the window down.
