A friend of mine is out of town so I am trying to help his wife with their 97 E320 sedan. We recently had a heavy rain and she called me last night and said that she thinks she hears water sloshing around in the door. I am going to run by their house after work today and try to figure out what is going on. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is there maybe a drain in the bottom of the door that is clogged? Any ideas as to what could cause this would be appreciated.

drain holes underneath the car must be plugged with dirt. they are located close to the rubber jacking points. no need to jack up the car, you can access them by kneeling down, get a nail or thin pen and dislodge the dirt from the drain holes, as soon as you clear them you will see the water drain.

Thanks guys. It turned out it wasn't in the door but the drain in front of the jacking point was clogged. All is well now.
