Default Front floorboard water leak

I've been searching but most people seem to have clogged sunroof drains, I've already cleaned those out. I'm getting water in the floorboard between the front pillar and the seat on both sides, more so on the drivers side.

Any place in particular to look for?

What model year is it?

I've had a similar problem in my '06 LR3 (all the gory details in this thread: I seem to have a small lake in my '06 LR3 )

The list of water sources includes:
Sunroof drains being clogged
Sunroof drain lines getting kinked
A leaking windscreen cowl -- especially that nice little dish the passenger side wiper sits in -- often after a windscreen replacement.
The drain tube to the HVAC coming disconnected

And what turned out to be my problem: the A pillar leaking. This was caused by the A pillar being swapped out (by the dealer I bought it from) and the requisite patches not put in place.

You do want to get that fixed and get the carpets and under-carpet insulation dried out as one of the main wiring trunks runs under the passenger-side carpet. Electricity and water don't play well together.

Default Air conditioner drain hoses but doubt it.

One of the files re the link below shows a jpg of the air conditioner drain hose layout.

If your carpet was soaked by the gas pedal or just on the other side of the transmission hump, then I would think that one or both of the AC drain hoses has disconnected itself.

Since the water is instead near the A pillars, then the previous post above is more likely the solution.

Some things just never change, do they?
