Hello, I am Danny.
Yes, that area is called the Wiper Cowl. After time a bunch of debris(leaves, acorns, dirt, trash) clogs it up and does not allow for proper drainage. You might want to look into having someone remove the plastic cowling and clean out by hand or using high pressure compressed air to clear it all out to restore proper drainage. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
