Wet carpet. Leaky windshield?

My truck has had an odor in it for about a week now, like a musty smell, I started investigating today. The passenger side carpet it wet after I pulled out the floor mats. It's the center of the floor so I don't think it's coming from the door, I think it's coming in around the windshield. It doesn't smell like coolant so it's not a leaking heater core. Has anyone else had this issue?

I've seen it a lot in cars. The ac condenser drain is probably clogged up. When running the ac is there a small puddle of water under your truck. If not the condensation is going somewhere. In the floorboard under the dash there is an ac evaporator. See if you can locate it and locate the small hose that runs from it through the floorboard out the bottom of the truck. It could have came loose or may be plugged. Hope this helps.

Still double check the drain from inside the cab. It may just be half way on. Someone else on here may have some other suggestions.

_might_ be a leaking heater core (behind the glove box under the dash). You are sure that the "musty" smell isn't a semi-sweet nutty smell?

Guess you would know

I did, right after musty smell. I need to read what I type sometimes. To me antifreeze kinda smells like crushed almonds.
