Wet Passenger footwell - HELP!

Also put this in main section - sorry for duplicate:

Hello all,

Am after your help. I am the owner of a 1.3 Multijet Punto Mk 2b and am suffering a wet passenger footwell.

This was initially noticied in the summer when used the air conditioning quite a bit.

Now that winter is here, no need ofr aircon and the problem doesn't seem so bad - been trying to find the root cause of the problem.

So far

1) Not water ingress from blocked drain holes on the black bit under the windscreen wipers (Have had so much rain here last couple of weeks, but they are all clear.)

2) Pretty sure not a failed heater matrix as the leaked water doesn't smell / taste sweet / antifreeze smell....

3) So I am thinking something wrong with the aircon........... I guess when it works, condensation forms on the aircon unit and instead of channelling away under the car, somehow it's coming in?

Apparant entry place is top front of passenger footwell - towards the middle of the car (i.e. sort of behind the heather controls -but between the metal bulkhead and the carpet.

Been up to the local Fiat guy a couple of times, who has had a look, but between us we cannot trace the source.

Would be grateful if anyone on here has had a similar problem, and if so, whats the cause, but more importantly, whats the solution? Also, how can we replicate in the workshop to see the cause?
