I suddenly started to get water in the footwells of my 94 espace.

It drove me up the wall I tried all sorts of things, many of the things already suggested in this post, but my problem was different.

Bellow the wipers is a black plastic grill, you can remove it by removing the wipers and about 3 screws, it is a bit fiddly but it comes out. There is a water tray under there, which stops the water before it runs into the heater. The water from this tray runs away through a drain hole in each corner (at the bottom of the windscreen pillar)

Take a coat hanger and straighten it out, and push it into the corner of the tray. When I finally cleared the blockage the water poured out above the wheel..... and the floor dried up

I hope this helps
