SOURCE: Water in Passenger footwell
Tracking water leakage in cars is often not easy. However, in your case, I would start with the windshield. Was it recently replaced? If so, the seal might not be fine. Check the windshield rubber trim cover that runs around the top and bottom of the windshield to see if it is coming off from the frame of the car. It doesn't take much for water to get behind it if it is even slightly up.
While you are doing that, check around the top of the door frame. Many a time, water will travel down the contour of the door by the hinges and enter the footwell area if the rubber gasket has been compromised in any way.
Finally, check to make sure that the firewall of the vehicle does not have any rusted hole or improperly installed rubber bushing or gasket on the firewall that could allow water to run along any wires or cables there and trickle into the vehicle. I hope I have been able to help you with this problem. Good luck.

the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks

Open the front doors and look for a small black tube sticking out the door jamb. Slice the tip off with a razor blade. This is your sunroof drain.
Have a mechanic check underneath of the battery for debris blocking the battery pan drains and that the cabin filter cover is on tightly and sesled with silicone.
