If it's in the rear foot well I would check around the rear door seals and see if you can pin point where it is coming in. Once you have found where it's getting in you can then think about stopping it!

Thanks for your reply mate,
I have just had the door card off and all the foam looks spot on and dry and still stuck on really well. Have also checked the seals round the door and can't see anything split or loose.
I have noticed on the passenger side windscreen on the top corner the trim has lifted,could this be anything to do with it. Bearing in mind it's just the rear drivers side foot well that's wet all the others are dry.

Have you examined car from underneath? I dont think it will be anything to do with door seals/drain holes. Cant see it being anything to do with your windscreen either.
If it was me,id 1st look under car etc,then see about drying carpets out with hairdryer etc,then try to see where its seeping thru from. Have you taken arch liners off or anything to check. Could be that wheel sprays throwing water up but to where,thats the question.
If all else fails,carpets up & have a look?

I have this same problem which is driving me crazy. I have checked everything and both rear door fittings and trims and seals are exactly the same but the rear drivers side footwell is soaked. I also have the same problem as Nick and thats a bit of trim has come loose (just next to the centre door frame.). As soon as I get the chance I will put a photo onto this page.

Just a update on my puddle problem haha.
Since having the door card off and having a mess about with the inner foam door lining,and taking a trip to the scrappers for a set of weather strips for the windows it seems to have solved the problem :)

Honestly I don't know tbh. I had the door card off and it felt all dry,but I pressed all the foam back round the edges and refitted the door card. I then went and got some weather strips for the bottom of the windows from the local scrapers as mine was all bubbled up. I fitted them and everything seem to fine at the moment.
So could have been either of the two tbh.

Haha,
If you put your window down the rear just pull upwards and front ones side pull up gently from middle and slide from under mirror. To fit is just reverse.
I also found that they do come off with windows up but you just have to be a lot more careful as there quite easy to snap.
Hope this helps.
