I’ve been getting water on my passenger side floor usually after it rains. I can see it drip down from underneath the dash. Any ideas what’s causing this??

Since you said “usually” and not “exclusively” I’d suspect the AC drain tube is clogged, or the casing cracked.

Another possibility is the windscreen leaks, but I’d check the AC first.

I pulled the drain tube fully out and it wasn’t clogged... I also pulled out the air filter which was very dirty and cleaned that out but wouldn’t think that’s the cause.
What would you say to check next???

Figure out if it's rain, the AC, or both that cause you a problem.

If AC:
The plastic casing that encloses the A/C condenser, from which the drain tube receives water.

If rain:
If that all checks out then check the windscreen.

is the plastic casing the thing directly behind the passenger glove box?
And by wind screen are you meaning the wind shield lol sorry if I’m misunderstanding.

That part of the bodywork close to the firewall that meets the windscreen.

I located where the leak is coming from. Here’s a pic, the circled area seems to be where it’s coming from and there is a small gap in between two pieces of metal.

Since I did locate the exact spot I decided to watch it as it’s raining now.
I also messed around with the heat, ac and defroster to see if that effected it which it doesn’t seem to cause the water to start dripping.

it seems like its only from the rain.
ant clue what the problem is?

I’d suspect the cowl like CJ said or the windscreen seal. Have you ever had the glass replaced?

I checked the cowl yesterday. It seemed fine, I poured some water and it all drained out near the wheel well area. Unless something could be wrong with it still?

Glass has never been replaced before and when checking the cowl I inspected the windshield seal and it obviously looks quite old. I’m kinda thinking it’s that unless again I missed something while checking the cowl.
