Water leakage into cab

I have water leaking into my car under the glove box, i've removed the glovebox, and that piece underneath it.
I can see the heater core (is that the right name?) but i can't tell where the water is getting in from. i noticed a hose on the bottom right of the heater, and it was disconnected from the elbow that connects to the heater, so i reconnected it...

also, i must mention, the cover that used to cover the heater over the opening beside the battery is removed (i took it off to clean the blower motor) and i haven't put it back on.
is this where the water is coming from? because i noticed water leakage even before that cover was removed.

You could have a rust hole under the battery, very common. Check and see, the hose you found is more than likly the drain for the a/c evaporator, and if it is no hooked up it could cause a leak. I f your battery box is leaking then you can either, weld in new metal or fiberglass works good as well. Just do a good job, Also check to see if you car ever had the windshield replaced if it did it may be the cause of you leak. I have seen this many times. Get some one to soak the car with water while you are inside, and then look for the leak you can all most allways find it Good luck

I second- Battery box. Very common on "early" 944's..

You can also fiberglass in an "inner tray", about an hour's worth of effort. ..

When the tray area under the battery and on other side of my car have about 1/2" of water in I get water coming in below the glove box and the other side of the car. This has always been caused by the drain holes from those trays to the engine compartment being blocked by leaves etc (there are alarm wires running in those holes in my car) and there are no rust holes below my battery or the other side. Suspect the water finds its way up and over the tray through air pressure when driving at normal speeds.
