    Losing my mind...

    Yes, yes, I know...

    My offroad/farm/hunting vehicle is a 2003 Bounty - crew cab (cab plus), with a flat deck tray.

    I've recently started hearing water/fluid sloshing around. It is really noticeable when I reverse, and hit the brakes. Sounds exactly like I have a big 10lt water jug half full...

    It is driving me nuts

    I've had a good look to see if the fuel tank somehow came loose. Does not look like it. I've checked the fuel filler cap.

    I've triple checked that there is not a water-bottle under the seats, in the cubby or anywhere in the cab.

    I've checked both the front and suicide doors to see if water somehow got into them. Nope.

    Like I said, more noticeable when braking in reverse, but I do hear it faintly when accelerating forward as well.

    Any idea / suggestion appreciated

    Water in the bottom of either your drivers door or passengers door, normally the passengers door

    Poke a knitting needle or wire up into the drainage hole as they will be blocked

    sometimes they have a rubber plug

    Inside the chassis frame or cross members? Pretty easy to get a bit of dirt clogging up the drain holes, not sure how water would get into them unless you took it for a swim

    270 is a practical number, by the second definition

    270 is a sparsely totient number, the largest integer with 72 as its totient
    Given 6 elements, there are 270 square permutations[3]
    10! has 270 divisors
    270 is the smallest positive integer that has divisors ending by digits 1, 2, , 9.
