Hi, my name is Jay

You need to look under the car behind door jam and there will be a drain as part of the body on one of the pinch welds. Use a coat hanger or compressed air to blow out the debris that is blocking hole. If you open trunk and pull back carpet on that side to look in back side behind wheel well to see if water is collecting there also as there is a drain in there also.

Was able to loosen debris and drain water, a lot of water. This is a FORD DESIGN FLAW and SHOULD NOT HAPPEN but I appreciate the response from Jaybird61 because nobody at the Ford Dealer would help me, if you can believe that.
