When it rains water in in the rear sloshing
The 1997 Sebring convertible has rocker panels (the metal that goes from front to back wheel well and directly under the doors) that have five drain channels each. The sloshing noise occurs when the drain holes plug up and a rocker panel fills up with water. Often, the water will then leak into the right rear footwell, soaking the carpet. A quick fix is to locate the drain holes and run a flat (unused) twistem-tie (they come with your trash bags) through each hole several times. Commonly, doing so will result in a deluge of water, along with spider web parts, leaf parts, and whatever else washed into the rocker panel fromo the rear window.
To find the drain holes, just 1) lie under the car with a flashlight, or 2) sit alongside the car with one of those mirrors that come on a telescoping stick. Since I don't like to lie in dirty water, I use the mirror to guide my twistem-tie (or ice pick or spring wire or whatever) into each hole. NOTE: the drain holes are flat and run at a 30 degree angle from back to front on the right side and from front to back on the left side.
