Wet weather blues

With all the wet weather we are having now, my 147 has decided to start playing up. Almost every time I run through a puddle or a bit of standing water, it loses power and the exhaust makes a dreadful rasping sound. It only ever happens when I run through puddles with the offside front - I've tried going through deep puddles with the nearside only and it never plays up. In every other respect it is running fine. I've checked the air filter housing and pipework for leaks, just to see if water might be getting in there, but no joy. Its as though water being thrown off the nearside front tyre is finding its way into somewhere. Are there any sensors in that area that might be the culprit??
