I had trouble with my Cruiser. Same problem. When it rained the carpet on the driver's side got wet. Very wet. And I could not find the leak for ages..
Try having a look at the rubber corrugated conduit that carries the power cables from the car interior to the door (for the window and mirror). It's easily seen with the door open but can be a bit tricky to get to as there's not a lot of room between the door and car body. There is a flange-type seal on the "car-end" that should sit tightly against the bodywork. Check it by gently squeezing it and give it a gentle tug. Do NOT pull it off the bodywork or you'll have a real problem reseating it. If in doubt compare it with the one on the front passenger side. I found that my one was no longer a tight seal. The result was that rainwater from the roof ran down the drain-gullies and onto the area of the seal. It then leaked into the bodywork cavity and trickled out behind a trim panel (where ift could not be seen) and onto the floor. The leak is worst with the door closed because when the door is open there's more tension in the rubber conduit as it gets compressed and so is pressed tighter against the bodywork thus improving the sealing effect.
Remove the door-sill trim strip and the side-panel trim (by the bonnet catch lever) and lift the carpet. You'll see a square metal patch stuck to the bodywork which covers a hole. This is where the water entered my Cruiser. Replacing the parts looks like it could be a nightmare, so I used a sealant applied around the loose conduit seal and so far so good.
Hope this helps and cures your problem. Good Luck!

I have water coming from under the dashboard as well when the A/c is running. My fathernlaw is a mechanic and he thinks the drain for thea/c is plugged underneath. He says you must have the vehicle on the hoist and get it from underneath. I am having other issues with my Dodge caravan, and is been in the shop, so I have not had a chance to get under and look at it and try to fix it

try having an assistant 'water'' your car with a garden hose while you're in it.especially check seals at windshield & doors.it could take a few minutes of ''watering'' before a leak shows up.

the windshield could be leaking behind the dash,a good way to check is put the fan of the heater on,hot or cold and get a solution of soapy water and apply to the outer edges of the windshield and look for bubbles.
