    Sounds like it could be your heater core.

    if it smells like anti-freeze it's your heater core but most likely your condensation drain is clogged up.....there's a drain on the passenger firewall under the car. Should be able to just run a coat hanger up that drain and free the clog.

    Ditto, my first guess also; heater core going out.

    I would say 90% of the time when I see these threads it's the condensation drain.

    You have to lift the car and look for a rubber spout coming out of the firewall pointing downward. Once you get the coat hanger or compressed air in the spout, water should come rushing out immediately.

    no i never had any water leak into the cabin from running the AC, just like i had my car parked nose pointed downwards on my driveway and we had bad rain, and then i checked my pass side under the mat and it was soaked, and it was a hardtop so idk? :/

    same drain though.....yours could've been a window seal or something leaking but 9 out of 10 times if you're passenger carpet is wet and doesn't smell like antifreeze it's that drain.

    Take off some of the paneling on the interior and have someone spray the car with the hose while your inside to try and isolate it.
