I have the same problem, it only occurs when I either drive through hideous puddles or when we have torrential rain.

I eventually decided to take the Clio to a friend of the family who's got excellent reputation with cars. He took a look underneath the car and found a 'grommet' missing. He said it could well be the source of the problem, but couldn't be certain. Anyway, he welded a plate over the hole where the grommet was missing and I haven't had the problem since, this was until yesterday! (around 6 months after the plate was welded on! .. we had bad weather and I took the car for a drive, drove through a few deep puddles (which I try to avoid).

Out of curiosity, I checked the passengers foot well only to find it flooded like a duck pond. Now I'm back to square one trying to establish the problem. Might take it back to my friend, perhaps the welded plate has come off?
