Default Soaking wet driver's side footwell during heavy rains, 2003 Sentra

So my son's '03 Sentra (GXE model, 1.8L) has a water leakage problem when it rains. Water is soaking the floor mat & carpet in the driver's foot well area. Looks like water drips down from somewhere behind the A-pillar, and hits the plastic kick panel trim by the hood release before making it to the floor mats/carpet. Any ideas on where to search for the leak?


When it stops raining, I'll try testing with a hose to see if I can isolate how the water is getting in. FWIW, the car does not have a sunroof, so I don't think there would be any drainage tubes in the A-pillar that could be clogged or leaky.


Thanks in advance!

If it doesn't have a sunroof and water is coming down the a pillar then it is probably leaking at the windshield .
