All together now - pollen filter. Search google news for numerous posts
about this.

Cheers

Suspect Number 1

The pollen filter (cabin filter) cover is on the passenger side at the
bottom of the windscreen. Part of cover is the actual seal with the
bottom of the windscreen (passenger side). If it is fitted back without
care or if it has been broken you will get water into the passenger side
foot-well. This is a common problem that usually results in posts to
this group when the owner has taken the car to a Ford dealer for a
service.

Alternatively, someone has taken the car for a swim.

500,000 cars were water damaged by the recent hurricanes.
One-half are estimated to be headed for the retail market.
Do a Carfax search and be suspicious of any car from
a Gulf state.

Water from an improperly sealed pollen filter will usually be found
on the passenger side only. What happens when the car is run
through a car wash? How about the area around the spare tire?
Check both the transmission and oil for signs of water contamination.
There are numerous articles on the Internet with regard to flooded cars.

I live in the west of Scotland, we get our fair share of rain. I fixed my
leak with a 4 tube of silicon sealant.

Perhaps you and your wife suffer from incontinence.
