Make sure the AC evaporator drain is allowing the water to drain out under the hood through the drain hole. Since it is leaking on the passenger side, check the AC drain under the hood at the firewall near the bottom. Also make sure the evaporator case is dry. If it is wet, the AC is not draining. The water will collect in the back seat floor board because of forward motion of the vehicle will cause the water to flow to the back seat.
