Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
When it rains, water runs in small streams on floor from behind emergency brake area. When carpet is pulled up during rain, can see the water streaming down floor from behind emergency brake side of driver side floor.
Keep looking by covering area at hood etc and running water on the vehicle to locate where it is coming in---Windshield?
This is the best way if you cannot trace the stains from water to source.

I have had this problem before, remove the inner trim panel on the rear look down at the bottom of the fender well there is a drain hole there, it is probably plugged up, it is there to drain rain water out of the car that comes in when it rains. Hope this helps, let me know.

SOURCE: water in floorboard
Either the sealant that was used in putting your windshield in has began to fail, or there may be a larger opening under the vents, or on the firewall in the engine compartment. Look under the vent slats/holes under the windshield wipers. Look in the bulkhead that separates the engine from the dashboard(With the hood up). Those are the only ways water is getting in. Seal it with an expanding style sealer

It's either the driver's side door seal or the windshield leaking. Best bet is to be inside on a dry day and have someone run a garden hose over that side of the car. That will give you your answer.

check the grill area under the windscreen ,, you should be able to acess this with the bonnet open,, there are 2 drains to allow water to be drained ,,, these can get blocked by leaves and dirt causing water to build up and get into the car through the heater
