Do you use the a/c. There is a little rubber elbow that can be found by looking under the hood at the lower firewall on the pass side.
They are notorius for falling off. When they do the the result is a wet pass carpet.

How hard is it to remove the drip box? If it can be done without pulling the heater core you can swing by and swap yours out with mine since I don't use a/c anyway.

Yes, if that nipple that protrudes out the firewall is cracked/broken, It could very well be the cause of your wet carpet. That nipple is part of the lower cover/drip pan to the heater core & A/C under the glove box.

There's your answer Rich
