Ok take off the windshield wiper arms, then remove the plastic piece under the wipers below the windshield, there is a tray under there and some drain holes, you may have to remove some more plastic pieces once you remove the one below the windshield (some models are slightly different) clear out all the tree leaves and pine needles and such from the tray there are drain holes in the enter, and on each end push a long flexable rod down carefully or compressed air really works the best this is you problem it needs to be done every few years or more often if you park under trees.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating , Thank you, Randy

Try moving the fan blades by hand to see if the fan spins freely to see if the problem is frozen bearings in the fan motor. Replace the fan motor if it doesn't turn. If it spins freely disconnect the wires and hook the fan directly to the battery using a jumper. If it runs the problem is most likely the thermostatic switch. If it doesn't the fan motor is bad.

Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.
If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

There is only one thing that will cause it if you have a Sun roof and that is the water drain pipe from the roof to the wheel arch were it drains out and this bunged up,so blow it out with air compressor or high water pipe.
IF no to sunroof then its the windscreen leaking at the top and you might not beable to see it it will be at the top But dont try and fix it as the screen has to come out to do the job correctly.
But if only leaks water on floor and not on top of dash it could be the vent under windscreen were the wipers go and the vent drains the rain also to the left and right side of wheel arch, then they can be blocked and overflowing into the air box for the heater because that is where the air comes from when on FRESH AIR for heater..So check them out and do as required it shouldent cost you anything unless its the screen out..Job Have a goodday Let me know how you get on Ron

First thing we gotta find out where its coming from. After floor is dry sprinkle baby power on the floor and up my the fire wall and the check for the wet spots.
Possible causes: Lead in floor boards, a window replacement where the gasket was correctly installed.Drainage passage clogged for winshield
wiper motor area.
