Water leak behind the glove box onto the passenger side floor.
I don't notice much of a drip when the heat or A/C is off. However, when the heat is on, there is a moderate drip. When the A/C is on there is a very rapid drip, and at times it sounds like a dog urinating on the carpet. I heard a swooshing sound when I made a turn. The sound came from the location of the water leak.

Does your car have a sun (or moon) roof? A leak in a sunroof will sometimes follow the roof over to the door post and down to the floor were the water will accumulate. This can be hard to find sometimes but having one person spraying water on the roof while a second one checks the inside of the vehicle you may be able to pinpoint the leak. Hope this helps.
Don't drive the vehicle in this condition. Interior water leaks can damage vital components such as the ECU. Check the heater matrix, which is situated in the centre of the interior of the car, up behind the dashboard, roughly behind where the stereo is located. It is surrounded by block, plastic shields, which have to be removed to get to it. If this heater matrix is leaking, then you will have to replace it ASAP, or otherwise risk overheating, or flooding expensive and critical components within the vehicle.
If it only leaks with the heater on and air-con off, then the heater matrix is your likely suspect. If you have a leak with the air-con on only, then check your air-conditioning evaporator unit's drain pipe for security and for any blockages.
The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the passenger side.
Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.
ts likely a leak in the seal for the windshield Take it to an auto glass shop they have a tool its like a neddle and they can shut some sealer under the molding it olny takes a few minutes and if they can find the spot where its leaking it should stop but its hard for them to tell so if they don;t get it the first time don;t get to mad at them
Typically, when you have water leaking from underneath your glove box, that means that your heater core is leaking. Your heater core is basically a small radiator located inside your car, just behind your glove box, thjat a fan blows through for the purpose of warming the interior of your car and defrosting the inside of your windshield. This core is fed water via your engines water pump, from your engine where the water is heated, through the heater core and back through the radiator located under the hood of your car and through the engine once again, in a continual cycle. What happens after time, the heater core is of a much thinner construction than your radiator and will corrode through in a much lesser time. The other things which commonly occurs in the heater cores today, is that when your car overheats or blows a head gasket, it will allow the exhaust gas from your engine into your water system and create a tremendous amount of pressure. The heater core is not designed to deal with this extra pressure and typical blows out and leaks water onto the floor board of the passenger side of the vehicle. Heater cores are not all that expensive a part, but to replace it, can be quite difficult on some make and model cars. This information applies to most all make and model cars both previously and currently produced.
water dripping from under the glove box area is usally a sign of water in the heating ducts. water runs down the windshield and goes under the cowel, then instead of draining, it some how enters the air intake for your heating system. Take off your wipers, and remove your cowel, you will be able to see the air intake (on the passangers side) and the reason why the water is being directed into it.
You may have a buildup of A/C condensate water in the A/C cooler box. Start the car up, and run the A/C; you should start to see water dripping out from under the car onto the street. If not, the A/C condensate tube may be blocked or dislodged from the A/C box. The water then leaks out of the box onto your floor. The drain is on the pass side, under the dash, close to the center console. The pipe goes thru the body. This is a very common issue.
