Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse
Pulled back carpet, underneath was soaking! took 6 large towels to soak up all the water and still getting water coming, cannot find the source of the water but car has been over a pit and no signs of rust or holes etc. quite concerned because there are a load of electrics under the carpet where the leak is
It might be the Door membrane (its the sheet of thin plastic between the inner part of the door and the trim panel) open the door and put some water on the door glass and see if it comes in at the bottom of the inside of the door,When the door is shut water can biuld up and go over the door seal and into the floor pan,you will need to get the trim panel of to see if its that,Do you park on a camber of a roadif so yes try turning the car around to face the other way that might cure it,There are so many other ways water can get in,Windscreen/Grommet/Seam/Roof seam/1/4 Glass,you can also take out the seat and carpet and dry it out and sprinkle talcum power on the floor panel and that will show movement/direction of water,

You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.

I had a similar problem, water running off windshield down drain hole only came in when parked with front lower than rear. A hole used to route a wire to engine compartment from driver side through rear of fender allowed water to come in. Remove rear fender liner fastners from left front fender pull liner away without fully removing it and look for hole leading into cabin. Plug it with deaft sealer.
My 2001 had a wire for an alarm system routed through hole, but dealer who sold me car as used felt he could not leave an non factory alrm system in place DUH!

I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.
