Water leak E270

Nearside passenger footwells filling with water after rain. Dealer advises problem with drain pipe under front wheel arch blocking was
common with this vehicle. This led to flooding. Solved by removing the pipe and leaving water free to drain. This car has had the pipe removed during past servicing but has recently started to fill with water. Ideas on source of leak?
