The evaporator coil drain hose is clogged. Look under the car on the passenger side,directly under the firewall and you will see a black hose stub. stick something like a chop stick or pencil in it and clean it out.

very good chance that it is the heater core that is leaking into the car ,doubtful that this is a job you can do yourself as the dash -or most of it has to come out "youdoit"

SOURCE: Water leak on driver's side - 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

I was a manager at a Mitsubishi dealership.

There was a "secret warranty" on certain Galants where the firewall seam would fair and leak water into the interior. Call your local dealer to see if your vin qualifies. The fix is to simply reseal the firewall crimp seam with silicone sealant.

Alternatively, sunroof equipped cars sometimes get the drain channels clogged in time. Make sure to clean drain holes and use forced air if necessary.

Lastly, some cars have heaters with pollen filters. If those filters become clogged, condensation can accumulate and overflow into the interior.

If any of these solves your issue, please rate my answer

SOURCE: Air condition leaks into driver side and rear

The evaporator box drain is stopped up.Under hood,under the firewall,right below the ac lines,you will find the drain.Take a small wire,like balin wire and move it in and out of the drain hole to relieve the water,it will pour out pretty good.If this doesn`t work,try compressed air pressure.I hope this helps.

The only water leaks I know that appear inside a vehicle is normally from a bad heater core, but that normally leaks onto the floor of the passenger side. I would check your heater core regarding this problem.
