Default wet floor, clogged heater box/core drain?

I've had frost inside my windows last winter, started a thread in general GM over here. But now I'm thinking to get specific with the Bonnie people. Here'* the gist, my last post over there from just today.

then, about 3 weeks ago i could smell mold or mildew inside. i pulled out the loose carpet pads and the built-in floor-only carpeting was pretty wet in all 4 foot-wells. i thought it must be from accidentally leaving windows open in the rain. i got religious about closing all windows, ran high heat at idle for hours, closed doors, opened doors, etc and after a few days the rear foot-well carpets were dry, the driver'* still damp, but the front passenger'* still very wet. no more smell or i'd have panicked by now.

i started putting kitty litter in that passenger foot-well to soak up the wet. by god, every morning the litter had turned to clay mud and needed sweeping up and new litter put down. the wetness is worst near the seat and next to the center bump, but that could easily just be my driveway. this went on for maybe 10 days til i got sick of it a couple of days ago. no, the windshield isn't leaking down, tested that. someone suggested a rust hole under the car. hmm, maybe, but wouldn't it drain just as fast as it came in?

so just now i went to an auto-body place and the guys best guess is a clogged heater box/core drain. he said it might get un-clogged with a little tweak. me, i know nothing!
