Hi, like to seek your ideas on the following. We have a new Bessacarr E560. When driving along in, and after, rain, the water pooled at the side of the road gets thrown up and 'splatters' against the plastic box that forms the doorstep. The first time I heard it, driving home from the dealers, I was startled. However, I have now got used to it but am trying to work out a way of preventing it as we have reduced all other noise to a reasonable level.

So far my only idea has been to make and fit a deflector in front of the plastic box but I fear this will just create a different noise. Has anyone out there got any ideas, or, even better, a solution?

A deflector will change the direction that the splatter hits it and should not resonate, If that doesn't fix it don't drive in the rain or on wet road.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I shall try a deflector but living in Scotland makes it difficult not to drive in the rain:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Hi,
I bought a new 560 6 months ago and tend to find the conversion very
noisey, all sorts of rattles, the very hard ride dont help either! don't know
how to fix your problem but I know what you mean, there is also a plastic
air vent on the inside, low down near the door mat, a lot of noise comes
through there.

Best of luck, Kevin

One way of reducing the spray water sound, could be the use of spray suppression ( cats whiskers ) as used on commercial vehicle wheel arches.
