Water in the sill

I've just drained water out of the sill on the driver's side.
Any idea where this might originate from? I remember seeing something on the
list about it but cannot find it. Is there a blocked drain hole somewhere?
Thanks

I had this a few months back.
All of a sudden one day there was this sloshing sound that for some stupid
reason I assumed was the sound of LPG sloshing about in the load-area tank.
Then I realised and removed a grommet from the nearside sill; about two
gallons of crystal clear water ran out.
I've never had this happen before or since so I'd like to know a possible
cause too.

one of your water hole drainer plugs is blocked.
I've seen this b4 (had it happen on mine as well but can't remember where the plugs where :)

They are under the sills. I have removed them altogether.

I've found them - but just wondered how the water gets there in the first
place?
Something somewhere must be blocked...but then again its not that
important...

Just seen this on 80s cool...thought `I'd seen something sosmewhere
The problem actually is the drains in the rocker panels and it applies to
all 80s. The drain slots are very small and clog easily.
There are three on the bottom of each sill under the doors, one near the
front, one at the middle and near the back. They are right on the seam and
can be difficult to find. When you have a close look, you'll spot them. A
fine stick or something will clear them (actually, the thin end of a zip tie
is good). It is an idea to pull the rubber bungs and flush the rockers out
every now and then. They fill with dust and once water gets in, it makes
mud.

Ah, OK
But then why would I get water in one sill suddenly, and a lot of it, but
never before or since? I haven't cleared any drain holes, I just took a
grommet out to drain the water and then replaced it.
