There should be at least one drain in the rocker panel. Most likely there is one at each end. It may just be clogged with dirt. You could clean it out with either water or air.

The water can either get in from underneath, from the wheelwells r from draining down through the body. I don't know how the W210 sunroof drains but that could be a source for example. If there's any dirt or debri in the channel the least amount of moisture ,even humidity -tempature changes, can cause muck/mud. Then it's just a matter of time before it doesn't drain at all. I have always made it a practice of clearing them out when washing the car. Granted I live in an area where the winters are harsh as they are in the north so it's a bit easier to do year round
