REALLY bad leak inside cabin???

Anyone else have this problem, everytime it rains real bad, water is getting into my cabin on the driver side, it doesn't get me wet but its dripping out all around the e-brake area. i mean it builds up and once it over flows it like pisses down on the carpet all around the brake. its not the weather stripping I have that all on nice and tight and the doors are closed fully. Any other idea? Doesn't do it everytime it rains just every now and then.

Drain

Is there a drain from the ventilation air intake (near the wipers) that is plugged? I had a E150 that I got Z-Barted, and they sprayed the gook in between the left fender and the inner wall (with the driver door open you could look forward at the hinge and see the area). They sealed the little drain door, and my left foot would get a bath when it rained. Had to pry it open again.

I never heard or seen that before.....sounds like there is a hole that is plugged up.....do you know where it is building up before it over flows?

Leaks like that is a real pain to find. That would be a dealer item. Let them get all wet trying to find that one.

Leak was def. there before the gauges were installed. I can't find where it builds up at. It just streams out from under the panel next to the brake.

Well my only guess would be to take off that kick panel and take a peek behind it and see if you can see where the water is running down
