If you're struggling to find a water leak, take a look at this post:

My car has now been bone dry since I completed the works!

It might be an idea to check the pollen filter. It is on the passenger side on the MK1, and the rubber seal is prone to perishing over time. This can cause water leaks.

The exact same thing happened on my MK1, so it might be worth checking.

Also check you door cards seal. That was the problem on my car after I'd done everything else as in pollen filter seal, door seals etc. Seems worse if your car in parked in a street/driveway that slops to one side.
