Re: driver side wet when rains
The air intakes at the base of the windshield are supposed to direct rain water to drainage ducts in the front door pillars. The ducts can become clogged with leaves and debris. This may be the source of water on the carpet.

If passenger side is dry it would point to a problem with the door seals on the drivers side either a door or sunroof if you have one. If there is that much water you could sit in the car, have someone use a garden hose or pressure washer on the door and sunroof to see where the leak comes from.
several qs. What year make and model is the car? Is car level when water fills floor? Does it always happen every time it rains fairly heavily? Is the trunk always dry? Talk to other owners for their experience.
Get a water hose,get in vehicle shut doors,have someone run water on the driver side and see if you can see where it's coming from and follow it,also pop hood and see if water is going through there.One of thing is the heater core,could be leaking,check your coolant level,if good,then no leak there.
most common problem is the a/c condensor tube is clogged and is under the car and needs to be cleared with compressed air. also the sunroof track has 4 drain tubes and the right front may be clogged or leaking. you can check that by pouring a cup of water down the right front drain tube in the sunroof track and see if water comes out by the right front wheel
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
