Hi. I noticed a drip coming from underneath my 2016 Terrain, around the driver side rear wheel, so time ago. It was about a day after I had washed the car. I immediately thought it was some sort of oil leak, but it was just water. I recently changed to my summer wheels and discovered that the bottom spring mount / cup, is full of silt and holding water ( which explains why the water appeared on the drive long after the car had been washed ). I did my best to clear out what I could, but can't seem to find a drain / weep hole, which should allow small grit / water to drain out straight away. Has anyone else had this problem, and found the location of the drain or a solution to it? It seems to only be happening on the driver side, then again I have had an Impala and Equinox, and have found that rust is worse in and around the D/S rear wheel, than any other area. No idea why! Anyhow, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Ted
