Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
There is a hose, thin walled, usually black, that runs the water out of the vehicle. It is about 1/2 inch wide, or so. Look under the car, on the right side, at the firewall, and locate this drain hose.
Issues are typically a plugged hose, or a dislodged hose. A foot sometimes knocks it free... My bet is one of those.

SOURCE: leak onto floorboard
there are basicaly only 2 things that can leak onto your floor boards the first is your cooling system. If its your cooling system the only part of your cooling system that comes inside your car is the heater core. The 2nd thing that does happen but is unlikely, is if you have a sun roof. There is a drain and a tube that goes down to the doors. if its clogged instead of going down to the doors, it will over flow and spill under the head liner and flow to the floor. But because your widows are getting wet also I would bet its your heater core.
In most cases Heater cores are pretty easy to replace. they are usually located behind the glove box, but can get more difficult depending on the make and modle. I would purchase a Chilton. You can get one at the part store. Dont get a Haines, they are often difficult to read and are not as easy to use. Also Honda's are notorious for A/C mold, but you can buy a kit that you put down the vents that kills it. You should be running the vent with just air not A/C to dry out the vents every once and a while that will help keep the mold down also. Hoda's and Toyota's vents are so well sealed that they are natural borne mold growers. The dealers also have some kind of mold removal thing they can do but as far as I know its the same as what you would buy at the part store. you may have to do it more than once, mold is not always easy to get rid of.

2004 TB 60,000 miles. i was just told that the leaking fluid in my passenger side floorboard was do to a clogged up A/c hose. An A/C works by drying/ removing the moisture from the air inside the vehicle and cooling it. The accumulated fluid is usually evacuated under the vehicle which is what you see when people are stopped at a red light and there is dripping under their car. when a hose is blocked there is a vent that from some reason flows directly into the passenger side floor board. If you can not manually knock loose the block your probably going to have to take it to a mechanic.

Here is link to your HAVC system to your Sierra and #22 is where your A/C drain hose is located on the fire wall, passenger side. Find the hose to make sure there is no dirt that has clogged up the tube.
