Check the cabin air intake. Chances are the weather strip that lines part of the opening has come off. The intake should be accessible beneath the trim at the base of the windshield on the passenger side.
Is it coolant or water? If its coolant could be leaking heater core. If it is water chances are its coming out of the heater box because the drain for the water that pours on the cowl under the wipers is clogged and it is pooling up and going into your cabin filter or fresh air intake for the cabin. Take off the wipers and cowl, clean.
so if i were you i would be checking drain plug or drain opening in front of wind shield. probably it is under plastic grill next to wipers. it transfers the collected rain water infront of windshield and direct it to ground. if it is clogged flooded water can drain into cabin.
providing its not rust then put jack under front end of the seal ,if you have a trolley jack then go for chassis a bit further under ,but i dont think you get much of a corrosion problem in aussie unlike the UK or germany
Couple of spots to check - check rubber seal around door(s), check seal around windshield, and if equipped with sunroof, check the drain tubes (they get plugged and back up into cabin) An easy way to check for leaks - use compressed air around suspect points - have someone inside listening
I had this same problem. On the passenger side there is some gasket underneath where the windshield meets the plastic guard for the wipers that is prone to fall off. It's to protect from water entering through your passenger compartment filter. Take it to a local shop and just have them glue it back on. The water gets in through the cabin filter, so you may need to replace the filter as well if it's gotten moldy. Quick, easy fix.
Look under the passenger side of the dash, behind the carpet. Feel the back side of the carpet for dampness. If so, try this: In the same area, look for a black rubber hose that comes from the heater plastic box, and pokes thru the firewall. See if it is plugged up. This is the drain pipe for the AC box, and the cowl panel if the side drains are plugged up. Try that, and please get back to me.
I believe if you take a close look at your windshield seal at the top corner of the drivers side, you'll see a gap. Please get back to me on this ASAP. The reason for the urgency is that this water can infiltrate the padding under the driverside kick panel sound insulator causing a major short.
