Question about Ford Focus
I had a similar problem on my Focus but water was getting under the nearside passengers carpet (Mine is a right hand drive in the UK). I eventually took it to my servicing dealer who knew straight away that it is something to do with the way the windscreen is fitted. (I had previously had the screen replaced but as there was some time between that and me noticing the wet I had not made the connection). In my case the rain water was running down the windscreen behind the black plastic which is at the bottom and then apparently it was dripping through a filter (pollen filter?) into the car interior. The dealer sealed between the windscreen and the plastic with a black mastic stuff and it fixed it. Some time after when I had to have another windscreen replaced I mentioned this to the windscreen fitter who told me that it was likely that the previous fitter had not correctly re-fitted some sort of "gutter" component which is designed to direct water which gets behind the plastic, safely away to a drain area . That is, it stops it going through the filter into the car interior. Anyway whenever the dealer services the car and replaces the filter, (he has to remove the plastic cover to do that I think) he always seals the plastic cover to the windscreen with the mastic stuff so I've had no problem since. Perhaps in your case its a similar thing and the water is just finding its way over to the drivers side? I hope this is relevant and helps. Good Luck.
