Q: Rushing Water Sound? on 2005 Toyota Matrix

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When we make a hard left turn, such as in a freeway ramp cloverleaf, we hear what sounds like a significant quantity of water rushing from the left to right coming from behind the firewall or floor on the passenger side. I've checked for tire dragging, loose motor mounts, CV joints. Doesn't seem to be related to the air conditioner as happens whether or not the ac has been on. Its been a dry summer and haven't been to the car wash in a while so accumulated water somewhere is unlikely. Any ideas will be much appreciated.

I got the same sort of sound in my 2002 Toyota Echo, and have just unclogged and reconnected my a/c evaporator tube. Lots of problems reported with these in all sorts of Toyotas. Nicest: repair is free and fast.
I replaced the cabin air filter and the problem has not reoccurred over the last several months. Might have been something related to the air conditioner..... jr51
