I have the same problem but on the passenger side.
The bottom of the floor on the front and back passenger side will have standing water after a rain storm. I have looked at every possible water entry point around the doors, windows and front window. I put sealant if I suspected a crack.I almost think based of the volume of water that the water maybe coming through the ventilation vents under the seat and under the dash.Is this possible? How do I fix?
Re: I have the same problem but on the passenger side.
If you remove the grill under the wiper arms there is 4 drains one beside the one that looks like a funnel remove it and gargage it. there are also drains at each end that get plugged with pine needles and debris. now does anyone know why the passenger floor would be dry BUT the floor under the passenger seat is very wet on a SLK 230 kompressor

The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.
Sounds like the windshield is leaking. Run water over the windshield and have someone get inside car and look for the leak. Alternatively take it to a reputable windshield repair shop and have them check it.
I had the same problem with a 1994 Taurus. Within the front fender was 10 years of pine needles and leaves blocking the drain backing the water up in and over the fire wall and into the front passenger seat floor. I took a LONG pair of needle nose pliers threw the passenger side door, and was able to remove enough debree. After pulling out out about 5 fist full's of yuck, 1 gallon a water that was stuck some where poured out flushing out the drain. I did the same on the drivers side. After that I had no problems with floods. I hope this helps. If not check your back door weather stripping if you have one. I have heard water leaking behind the passengers seatbelt and onto the floor from under the seat. Got to love Florida's rain season(s)
drill a hole through the floor as a quick fix ,if it gets in let it out ,then check for the leak ,try under the firewall where the AC drain pipe is ,it could be the same pipe for drain water coming in from air intake vents
It sounds as if the drain line from the vent is plugged. You'll need to get under the car (jack stands please ) to locate. In your forward vent where air comes in for your AC or just Vent rain will obviously get in to it. There is a drain hole at the bottom of this to allow water to flow out. With time from dead bugs, leaves, road dirt... this vent can plug. Under the car locate this vent line, place a small wire up within it to remove the blockage. After doing you may want to both test and flush by use of a garden hose. If there is a lot of accumulated debris it might plug back right away and you'll have to clear again.
I hope this may have helped,
Is it possible the water is actually coming from the A/C evaporator case, whose DRAIN IS CLOGGED ? The water produced by the A/C then leaks out of the case, down under the carpeting, then depending how vehicle is parked, can flow to the rear floors and carpet. Hope this helps
pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.
pop the hood and take out the plastic shroud on the passenger side at the firewall. there is a rubber weather stripping that will direct the rain water off the wind shield other wise the rain will fall directly onto the top of the fan motor then run down onto the carpet. i noticed mine when the fan motor iced up and was about an inch thick of ice. all i did was RTV on the weather stripping to redirect the water good luck.
