Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe
Removed the glove box lid and can see where it is wet and dripping but cannot find the source. It leaks when it rains only. its not the ac drain hose. my research has turned up cabin filter area? it does not have the filter never did. I cleaned the drain out at the cowl and bottom of the fenders but water is still coming in from somewhere any suggestions? HELP!!!

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: Wet rear floor
Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

the ac drain is clogged up,so it does not drain outside,check pass.side-pull carpet away from fire wall and padding should be wet

the ac drain is more than likley stopped up, they tend to get clogged with debri not allowing the condensation from the evap. core to drain properly, thus allowing it to leak into the floorboard.
