Default water leak advice please.

hi all,
ive been having a lot of problems with the inside of the car mistinig up badly for a while now, so thought i would do a bit of investigation work. well it paid off as ive found the rear passengers side footwell soaked with water.
ive done a search on here with no luck as there isnt a wet patch in either of the front footwells.
the only conclusion i have come to is that what i have found out on here is that the drain holes go down into the sills i think and then when to much water is in there then it overflows. dont know if thats right or not, so i tried to find where its suppose to come out if it does get into them ( even if its that in the first place) with no luck. so was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction why i would have water only in my rear passengers side.
i have no sunroof, the windows have not been down or anything like that.
i have had this problem from when i got the car 6 months ago, and only now it makes scence why it looked like someone has been at the carpets.
thanks in advance as its doin my head in now.
oh i have been through a couple of deep puddles lately but why is it only on that side and why has it always steamed up in side.
wierd or what lol.
thanks again.
steve.

cheers trustme,
i wondered that but when i felt the front footwells they are bone dry.
its only iin the rear passengers side, i did have a nice pool in the boot to in the spare wheel compartment too. good job i looked as the spare was bald and flat too.
i did have a good look at the seals and they all looked in good shape too, so its beyond me. had her up on ramps to have a good look too and shes solid.
oh the joys ah.

cheers monty,
hope yours is fixed now and not a bigger problem.
i was going to look at the back light clusters but got carried away in the rear passengers footwell with no luck.
i will reseal the lights to see if that helps the boot but im still clueless about behind the passengers seat.
i think my 307 is a little tired to be honest.
