So you watched it leak while it rained? Which vents located where? If under dash that area also is where AC drain off can leak if drain pipe is blocked/dirty

Water floods my driver and passanger side floor mats when it rains. I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and all the windshield seals are in vg condition.

Yes but the seals look good there also. Water is coming out of thee glove box location.

You can try the hose test by running water from garden hose on different areas of car and check for leakage.

I know it leaks already. Thanks. I know its rain not condensate. If it was from ac I would have to be in a rain forest level of humidity

I fixed it. Drain lines at wiper well below windshild were plugged. Blew it out with air hose at gas station
