Default Leaky Driver side door

I bought my first ranger a few months ago a did not realize that every time it rains or gets wet the floor of the truck gets wet, its not rusted through or anything so i figure it has to be in the window or door, the seals also look in decent shape. Any idea of what could be causing this and how to fix it.

My old Ranger used to do it and it was a corner of the windshield. It dripped down behind the dash where you couldn't see it.

If it's the passenger side then it could be the heater core like the previous poster mentioned.

common wind sheild problem (poor mounting design) truck has rain gutters, I wouldnt guess its the door but if it is you can apply vaseline to the rubber seals (preferably on a warm day) the rubbers will soak it up, swelling them.

Yeah this sounds like the problem, cause i tried to find the leak in the rain and i couldn't find it., so it leaking down behind the dash makes sense.

Thanks
