Default something rolling around sound?

There sounds like there is something rolling around in the floor of my 1998 boxster?

when i accelerate it rolls back, and when i hit the brakes it roll forward??

It is not in the door.
Almost sounds like it is in the rocker?

Amazing what you find under the seats. After I bought mine I bet I found a dollar in change and a few cans and other assorted items.

Also check the tunnel between the front seats. Usually a stash of coins will be rattling around there.

Possibly water because the top cavity drain is clogged. May want to check it. Also causes the rear carpet to get wet

That is exactly what I found in the area behind the carpet in the rear trunk under the rear fender about 6 months after buying my Boxster.
