Unhappy Water leaking into footwell of my SLK

I have a problem with water leaking in to the passenger foot well of my SLK230 (2000 year model). It seems to be an intermittent problem that doesn’t necessarily happen when it rains. The water is causing damp to the carpet in the bottom of the foot well on the door side of the car. On one occasion I have noticed water dripping from below the dash board behind the glove box – could this be caused by the air-conditioning? Please help!

If you get water into the cabin when it is not raining, it would be the heater core, AC condensation water. But in that case it should not come as high as you've detected, more like the hose at the bottom of the heater core.

Could it be some water at the water collector in front of the fire wall, the drain pipes being clogged?
