Question about 1998 Toyota Celica
Passenger side floor wet after rain. Only the flat portion of the floor not high on the firewall or behind the seat. I suspect some debris may be blocking a drain but don't know where to locate these. Only 8k miles on the car just bought it and this is the first rain I encountered. Had a problem latching the passenger side roof but finally got a good even seal. No water observed on roof lip inside or on the windshield. Roof in good shape no cracks in top. Hope someone has a way to clean and locate drains so I can give that a shot.
Go to a car wash with a good flashlight, and watch where the water comes from.

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

have the rubber seal around your windshield check by a wind shild installer base on what you explain the sel at that corner is leaking and the water is leaking back into the vehicle

check the parcel shelf has been refitted correctly as there is a micro switch on the left hand side that stops the second stage of the roof from opening

the water is most likely coming through the cowl and through the heater box to your floor. you would have to disassemble the cowl (plastic part between hood and windshield) and inspect the seal there.
