Hi all, I don't want to start another Landrover war but, I have a 95 V8 disco (which I like and replaced a rangie that I had for 7 years with no probs). When I go round corners there is a "sloshing water" noise emitted from the heater area, behind the dash.It does it whether it's set to hot or cold. Can anyone tell me what might be causing this noise? Also, has anyone had any luck getting their alpine window rust, that all discos suffer, fixed by Landrover?
To all those Landie slaggerofferer, If it's got tit's, wheels, fur or a propeller it's gonna cost you money.......no matter who makes it

Scott, the sloshing noise you talking about is not from the heater area but it is rather coming from the very empty area between your ears mate.
Seven years of Landrover ownership taking its toll.

All joke's aside, and I did have a good cakkle over that one, I am afraid I am no landie lover, Check that the drain tube for condensate from the air con is not blocked causing a build up of water in the bottom of the heater-air con unit. It should be visible as an open tube low down on the passenge side of the firewall.All the best with othe replies to your post! Regards Ken.

Scott, I previously had a '92 V8 Disco which had a similar water sloshing noise. It sounded like it was coming from under the vehicle when I turned corners, however I eventually traced it to
the passenger door. LR had plastic plugs in the drain holes and the door was filling with water when it rained or when I washed the car. Removed the drain plugs and the problem went. Check it out.

Had the same problem with my 95 Tdi on occasions and it was water in the doors. The drain plugs can block up if travelling a lot in dusty conditions - forms a mud slurry when it rains witch sets like concrete. You can ease out the mud plug from the drain plug or just remove the drain plug completely. I chose the former and made it part of every post-trip clean of the vehicle
