Rain water leaking in drivers side footwell and leaking in back
If this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?

I have a discovery 3 and I had the same problem with water in the footwell. The problem was blocked drain holes on the sunroof. The water overflows from the sunroof onto the headlining ( which is plastic coated so the water will not come through it) and then ran down the headlining to the "A" pillar. It ran down the back of the "A" pillar trim and then came out of the joint between the trim lower down by the door hinge area.

I was a manager at a Mitsubishi dealership.
There was a "secret warranty" on certain Galants where the firewall seam would fair and leak water into the interior. Call your local dealer to see if your vin qualifies. The fix is to simply reseal the firewall crimp seam with silicone sealant.
Alternatively, sunroof equipped cars sometimes get the drain channels clogged in time. Make sure to clean drain holes and use forced air if necessary.
Lastly, some cars have heaters with pollen filters. If those filters become clogged, condensation can accumulate and overflow into the interior.
If any of these solves your issue, please rate my answer

check the drain tube outlet on the bottom of the car, that drains the AC. It could have become plugged. If that fails to clear up the problem, then you'll have to check the heater core... But you would be smelling coolant.
