!!!You need to get this checked out NOW!!!
The most obvious leak on that area of the car is the BRAKE LINES. Is the car left or right hand drive?
If you can safely see under the car use a torch to see where the leak is coming from. Fluids can travel across bits of bodywork before it drips.
if it is near the sides of the car it could be brake fluid. If it is nearer the centre line of the car it could be gearbox or diff oil.
Please comment below with information on what you can see and I'll try to help more.

SOURCE: there is a water leak

I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

SOURCE: hearing noises from the driver side front and rear wheels

Jack up that side of the car and turn the wheels by hand to narrow down where the noise is comming from. You may have binding of brakes, if you are driving slow down the road and let the steering wheel go does the car pull to one side ? does it get worse if you touch the brake ? If it does, check the front.

SOURCE: driver's side rear wheel leaking brake fluid and

the fluid is most likely a leaking shock absorber. the rattling is the loss of fluid charge and most likely occurs going over bumps. I recommend that both be replaced.

How do I operate electric rear windows only with front switch at driver if rear switch is broken on a bmw 316 1992 model

You should be able to operate window from main front switch regardless if rear switch is bad. If it does not work from rear door or front door, it is probably not the switch, but the window motor which do go quite often. Take switch and verify it is working by testing with volt meter, next, check to see if you have 12VDC at switch, could be a broken wire, another common problem with older cars.

The right rear side of the floor is wet & i have no clue where the water is coming from. After it rains i can see water coming from a body plug under the car.

check the right rear door panel vapor barrier behind the door panel as if not sealed properly water will leak into the vehicle. a second issue maybe that the sunroof drain is leaking and would also cause a leak

Where is the speed sensor on a 2000 bmw 528i

There be one on each of your rear drive wheels.
If the speedometer and odometer do not work, the driver's side rear sensor is probably bad. If the speedometer works but the cruise control does not, then the passenger side rear sensor is probably bad.
