water sloshing 96 OB wagon

After a heavy rain, I'll hear sloshing for about a day or two. Sounds like
it's in the rocker panel. Can't find any drain holes to unclog. Has anyone
else had this problem?

The drain holes are obvious on my '02 ForesterS, so they must
be of a different design for a '96 OBW.

My neighbor had sloshing in her late model Toyota Avalon after a
heavy rain. I discovered the rubber moulding was installed too
far down the door frame and completely covered the drain hole. I
cut 1" off. Fixed.

The same rear door window glass seal was 1/2" short of reaching the
end for proper sealing, which was allowing water to get in. No fix.

For the duration of Swen, my address is inoperative.
 
I have the same problem only it drains into the foot are on the drivers side.

I've found the culprit to be the drain hole BEHIND the mud flap (front whell
well). If you take the mud flap off you'll probably find mud packed in there.
It prevents the water from draining out. And the water is what is coming from
the roof and draining down into the door panels and eventually out the drain
hole in the rocker panel.
