Water (rain) Leaking under dash

Pretty good rain today and my son told he had a drip under the dash on the drivers side only. I check the reservoir under the grille on the hood the hose is draining. Any clues on what to check next. It appears there is a vent (slotted area) on the driver's side of the reservoir that the water maybe getting in??????????

I tried chasing that down on my jeep for years. I finally just drilled an 1/8" hole on each side of the windshield through the hinge to drain it, but maybe this will help.

I just went through those. Pretty sure it's the drain under the vent

Do you have windshield light mounts on your hinges?
After beating myself up trying to find my leak it was from them

No hinge mounted lights. I'm getting ready to change the windshield hinges so I'll also change the cowl seal, it looks kinda crappy
