Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
More than likely the pollen/cabin filter assembly under the passenger side dash is the culprit. Bad design, and there's a class action lawsuit about it. It could also be that your sunroof drain hoses are clogged. They're located in your door jambs. - Small rubber tubes - squeeze them to see it any crud comes out. Do a search at www.passatworld.com

Is it water or brake fluid. Water could be a windscreen leak or leaves have got through the outside grille of the vent, blocking the drain, so when it rains the piping is full of water. As you go around corners the water leaks into the cab.
If it is brake fluid, you have a leak in the master cylinder which allows fluid to leak down the push rod, onto the pedal and into your carpet. If you are not having to top up your brake fluid it is not likely to be the problem.

You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.

look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)

it sounds like the drain hole for the condenser is clogged and the water is pooling up and overflowing out of the vent and spilling over onto the carpet. you need to un clog the drain hole. if you look behind the passange wheel and under neath the car you will see a black hose leading up and into your fire wall run a long semi flexible wire or like and un clog it do not jam it in to far or too hard you dont want to put a hole in the condencer but when you get through you will get a rush of water that should pour out

Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.
