The fix is to remove the dash and steel support and replace or fix the evaporator case. Thats about 10 to 20 hours worth of work for me. NOT FUN....

What I did for a band aid fix was to pull back the padding under the evaporator and insert a tray I made by cutting a plastic milk jug, using the handle portion of the jug as a spout. Then I inserted a tube in the spout.
Right now the water drains from the tube to a rubber floor mat and a towel on the passenger floor, very geto but it keeps my carpet dry.

I can post pics later...
Can you send me pictures of this sir

More than likely the AC condensation drain hose is clogged up and there is no place for the water to drain. Pop the hood and walk around to the passenger side of the vehicle, focus your attention to the firewall. You will see a black drain hose that drains to the ground. I used something strong but flimsy to poke it. I used a long string of weed eater string. Feed the weed eater string in through the drain hose until it is unclogged. Once you poke it you will see a gush of water escape the drain plug then you're done.
