Remove the cowl cover and clean out the drain. Water is pooling in there and then when it backs up it comes in the HVAC intake which is there on the passenger side.

Would that be true for the driver's side too? Passenger side is dry.

Nope. The HVAC intake where backed up water can come through is on the passenger side. Water on the driver side is probably a leak between windshield and frame or around the frame.

I've had quite a bit of leakage in the body panel join right in front of the windshield.

I sealed with clear exterior caulking.
