water leaks are always a big problem in finding the source. I suggest you find the source yourself and then bring the specific problem to a mechanic to fix.

to get you started, you need to spray alot of water on the exterior of the car and start looking at some usual spots for water leaks. They are:

1. rubber seals around the sun roof

2. rubber gomments in the passenger firewall

3. a/c evaporator

4. fresh air inlet

5. any rubber seal in the footwell area

What colour is the water.
Passenger foot well leads me to think a broken heater core as the first thing to check.

+1. A mechanic charges by the hour and water leaks can take FOREVER to find sometimes...
