Something weird happened today, i could hear water in the glove box!

Ok someone try this out:

Pick a quite spot to do this test

Start engine and let the car warm up
keep the engine running
switch off any background noise i.e stereo.
Turn on the heating at temp 23 - on fan speed 2 or auto until the fan stabilises - let the car idle
open the glove box and point your ear towards it
NOW blip the throttle to 1500 to 2000 rpm so it revs and goes back to idle

tell me what you hear try and listen beyond the engine noise

I think im losing the plot :(

Hi Topcat

I reckon its the aircon unit.

At the time of discovery i had a laptop on the passenger seat connected to my CAN system on the car, i was blippin the throttle to get various engine management readings onto my PC and noticed water sploshing around. Did you hear it too?

Nice one Leicester, I'm sure someone will try it out for you. When I read it I had to check it wasn't April 1st.
