Has anyone experiences any problems with water leaking onto the passenger
side floor? i have gone to 2 dealerships and neither can find the
problem. i believe the problem is coming from a drainage plug, buth the
water tests they have done never uncover the problem-any ideas? i keep on
getting large puddles of water in the car
Do you have a sunroof? check the drainage tube.
Is the screen bonding secure with no compromised sealing. Water can
run along channels and wiring for some distance before it finally
comes to rest in the foot well. That means that it is conceivable for
water to manifest itself in the back foot well when the ingress is via
the windscreen! Tiz a sod to locate!!!! (As you have found!!!)
Replacing the weather seals on the door fixed our flood problems...

Search google Groups for "Focus wet foot well" and "Focus pollen filter"
and you will have lots of reading.
Here is an instruction about fitting the pollen filter that may help to
locate the appropriate parts:
A very common problem due to an improperly sealed access panel to
the cabin air filter. Every Ford dealer should be aware of this problem.
The access panel is in front of the windsheild on the passenger side.
Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are much more pliable.

I will bet that it is coming from the cabin air filter place. I have never
had or messed with the cabin air filter and a couple months ago discovered
water on the passenger floor board. I live in the desert so is not a
problem except for the past couple months with all the rain we have been
having and now I am starting to get a mildew smell.
