Water inside the vehicle can only be from a few causes, it is very likely that it is not from the AC since that drain, (condensation from evaporator, takes place outside the vehicle) usually from the location you describe it is more likely that it involves the heating core, (hot water from the engine is circulated through this unit when a valve is open to provide heat to the interior of the vehicle.
during the summer most of the time this valve is not open but closed, leaving an amount of water up to several quarts of water, (over time the heater core can become damaged and begin to leak often inside the vehicle.
This is likely the cause, of your trouble

SOURCE: there is a water leak
Your A/C drain hose may be plugged. If so, the condensate from the A/C box will leak onto the floor, and eventually soak the rear carpet as well. This is a common issue. It is under the glove box, close to the passenger floor. Remove it and make sure that it is open. Alos, always run the A/C in the RECIRC mode.
Water in the trunk can be from a bad trunk seal or poorly sealed taillamp seams

Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.

i had the same problem. Flushed the sunroof drains, replaced the windsheild, and weather stripping on passenger and driver side doors. Car is still leaking. No one can figure it out.

Check the A/C condensate drain tube, which is under the glove box, towards the center console, going thru the firewall. If it is plugged, the water in the A/C box will have no place to go & leak onto the floor. This is a common issue, and running the A/C on the "fresh" mode compounds this problem. When the A/C is on, the water removed from the interior is supposed to drain out thru the firewall onto the street.

Look for a plugged drain at both rear side panels. Water from the top can enter the car, but it is then discharged out thru drains. If the drains are clogged, you will have this problem. Same for any other Toyota convertible.
