air con evaporator drain pipe blocked or missing. condensation forms on evaporator and and must be ablr to drain out under vehicle. if drain blocked water will build up and leak into foot well. if missing water will drain directly into foot well.
There is, however, an air outlet into the driver's foot area. If the heater core is leaking, the air coming through the heater core will carry the droplets into the entire air ducting system. The driver's foot area may be the closest outlet. If it smells like coolant, you need to replace the heater core regardless of where in the cabin the coolant is coming out.
Not unless it was blowing like stink. Was a rear window left open? Water could get in around the rear window and find it's way there. Have someone spray the car with a hose while you're in it or ride back there through a car wash. Have a friend help and you buy the treat.
Look in the front door frame, there are drains from the sunroof that are possibly plugged.
Squeeze the plastics nipples to see if water or dirt/debris comes out.
I took a 10" piece of metal shirt hanger and ran it up the nipple and alot of **** came out. Solved my problem.
There are drains under the battery box and under the ECU module. When they plug with dirt, pine needles, whatever, the water fills up the space and backs into the vents or wherever it can leak through the firewall and usually ends up in the rear footwell, drivers side. If you don't get on it and maintain those drain holes, it will start to take out the electrical. Gets very expensive for a simple design flaw. The carpet has to come up and thoroughly dried as well. Not much fun and a lot of work.
if its into the front passenger footwell i had this too, inside thwe door closure where the hinges fix is a small rubber hose that funnels water from the sunroof down the apillar in a tube and out, if thats blocked it will run into the car also it could be coming in throught the window seal inside the door and out just inside the door closure area.
