Default Help!!my car is getting sunk

Yesterday when i drove the car after 3,4 days i noticed some strange noise in it.
It sounds like car is carrying a river inside,first it was only driver door but today i saw it is same in all the doors.
Due to heavy rain in these days in pune i suppose water is gatherd in the doors.
I ask kiran by phone yesterday he said there must a crack on your car but now it is all the four doors.
Guys what is this,what should i do?what cant it do to my car??

God I didn't mean a crack!! Do one thing, on each of the 4 doors in your Palio (Built like a water tank now), there is a rubber plug. Pull that out from all doors and water should drain out. If you can't then wait till evening and I'll do it for you. If it is in the running board then its difficult.

Water collecting in the doors is a petty common problem with the Zen as well. Some times what happens is, the drain holes get clogged with leaves, twigs etc. As a stop - gap method you can try and clear the hole with a screwdriver or any pointy object. Next time you give your car for servicing, ask the them to clean the doors from the inside.

Don't ask the service guys to clean the door insides. They will rip off the valuable for money damping that you have in the front doors

I think that was me buddy.. All the four drain holes were clogged with mud.. i got it cleared and removed the rubber plugs as mud was collecting in them.. Dont know if it will make a difference..

Didnt get to check it as it didnt rained after that...

Payam you can do it yourself also.. Just take a small screw driver and clean the rubber plugs and then shake the door.. The water will drain...

The water inside the doors was just removed. It was contributing to ICE and some breeding of fish. Payam was here at my office and we cleared the mess.
