Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
On the outside of the car, on the passenger cowl, there is a black plastic piece that goes from the right side to mid windshield. there are some screw fasteners you can undo with a coin and the other ones you have to pop the center up before they will release. once you remove it you will see the cabin air filter. first, on my 2000 impala, it never had a cabin air filter installed from the factory, second on the bottom of the plastic cowl piece there should be a cork and rubber piece that diverts the water taken into that area to drain out the right side of the body. when the piece was installed at the factory it was jammed in there and was actually blocking the drain. i wound up replacing the cork and rubber piece myself (with some sheet rubber and stainless steel hardware) and when reinstalling (with a cabin air filter) i made sure it wasn't smushed into the drain. i had water leaks when ever i parked on the side of the road due to the sloping of roads the water would go to the right side. when in my driveway there were no leaks. this problem burned up two blower motors and two fan speed controls (resistors). price both of them!

Sounds like you may have a leak under the carpet or from a seal on the firewall . there is a seal under the carpet for drianing the car if its ever flooded check it and replace it if needed you may have to remove the seat
