Check under the hood along the firewall, below the windshield around ac evap. and drain area. This is a common place for water to enter and flow by various means (duct system) to passenger rear floorboard as well as slight passenger side front...but usually noticed in passenger rear floorboard.
After a heavy rain, I noticed about 2 inches of water on the rear passenger floorboards of my '02 Signature TC. The front was also soaked.
Try this link at Edmunds' forum - http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f147dda/0 - it discusses various leaks the town car has. A little way into the thread, it specifically discusses the leak on the passenger side. My leak was coming in through the foam gasket under the HVAC (air vent assembly). After reading the entire thread, I concluded my problem could be fixed by following Ralka's instructions on page three, reply #25. The whole repair took just over an hour - I'm not a mechanic, so if you're mechanically inclined, it would probably take less time. It fixed the problem.
PS - I also had to replace two plastic, rectangular cowl retainer clips (with plastic screws), they're made by Dorman (the 41099 cowl retainer fit perfectly, in spite of a link they have that says it's not made for the TC). If you also need to replace the clips, you can get them here - http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/search/?searchType=global&Ntt=cowel+retainer&N=0&submit=Submit+Query.
The vent under the hood on passenger side , more than likley the seal is leaking letting the water go inside. I have had to fix my mother's 1999 and my 2001 lincoln. It is not very hard to fix. You will have to remove the screws on the passenger panel under the hood to get to the vent. Pry the vent loose and re seal. You can take the hose and spray water on the W/S when it is dry to make sure it is coming in at that location.
