Not familiar with the vehicle however, if the "d" in "dti" stands for diesel, id check the large fuel filter; usually under the hood (bonnet). Possibly only needs the air bled out -especially if the filter has been changed recently.
While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.
I had this same problem on a '92. Get the carpet out even if you have to cut it out and dry the car with a space heater or blow dryer. Cover with a canvas to keep water out. Get under the car and look for holes in the floor or firewall allowing rainwater in. You may need to do as I did and remove the hood, left front fender, wipers, and louvered wiper panel, to look for holes. Use a garden hose to find leak. I found 3 rust holes in the firewall, using a strong flashlight and mirror to see hidden areas. I patched with metal patches, silicone, and roofing tar.
check the drain hole in under the front window voth side you will probably find a lot of leaves and muck in there clean this out. if sun roof fitted after you do this blow out the muck in there and re do the front pars again. check the wiring seals are ok and that there is no rust on the walls inside there. it should stop now. also this can happen in vectras to on the roof near to the rear doors on both sides there is a plastic cover. take them off and reseal them at same time put the plastic bit back on so the sealant holds them in place the check the seal in the boot just after the part just sealed there is to gromets with the wire coming out make sure they are in good and sealed and the seal on the part from roof to boot don't have splits in the seal if it has reseal them. had to do this to father in laws as the boot started growing mushrooms and mould. also check the seal on the arial if fitted to the roof.
If you are trying to tell us you have water leaking somewhere, it could be handy to know where it is collecting. Also are you sure it is water? Could be a liquid the car is supposed to have in it such as gasoline, oil. antifreeze, window cleaner. Generally the only time you have water leaking in a car it is from rain collecting somewhere, being unable to properly drain, or from the A/C system. Often in the summer water will drain pretty much nonstop from the AC system through a drain which usually is in front of the passenger's feet in the fire wall.
