Whole vehicle gets damp as soon as engine runs

A friend of mine has a annoying problem with his ZJ Orvis Edition 1994 or 95. Since they changed the a/c the whole car gets damp as soon as the engine is turned on (which automatically also turns on the ventilation) There is no difference whether the a/c is on or off. It's so bad that humidity drips off the the windows also in the back.
The dealer has no clue where this extreme moisture is coming from.
Any ideas/experience?

Sounds like the dealer needs to tear into their work on the AC. That and check the heater. I'm just talking out my, uh, elbow, but I'd look for unhooked pipes.

sounds heater core related (but I'm just a mechanic I wouldn't know)

On the passenger side of the vehicle feel the floor and under the dash. The heater core is tucked under the glove box by the fire wall. If the heater core gets a hole in it or fails it will leak coolant into the cab and send moister through the vents causing every thing to get damp and the windows to fog up.
