Default Water on passanger side floor board.

I just recently got a 2001 L200. We discovered we get water on the right floor board when it rains. The seals are good on the door. It looks like it runs down the door seal to were the hinges are and gets in. Is there a drain somewhere over there that is plugged?

There are drains on the bottoms of the rocker panels. My car got wet from water in the right side A pillar filling up and leaking inside. I found it by removing the plastic trim and hosing the car. The drains were partially plugged and cleaning them did not solve the problem. Down low on the pillar there was a factory sticker covering a factory hole used in manufacturing. Only it had slid down uncovering the hole, I made a new “ sticker “ with gorilla tape and solved the problem.

It is behind the plastic trim piece that has the fuse panel access door. I am not going to take my car apart for a picture, sorry. Your car get wet sitting in the rain not driving in the rain, is that correct? If your car gets wet driving in the rain it may be sealant failure in the wheel well area. When my car leaked it got wet in front first then the water ran to the rear carpet. There is no drain for the carpet area.
