There is a tube on the firewall which may be clogged it is the vent drain from in front of the windshield. It lloks like a radiator hose on the passenger side of the firewall next to the heater core hoses. See if it is clogged with something.

I had same exact problem. Clearing hose worked perfect.

Is there any mods to reroute that hose or remove or something cause my feet always get wet no matter how many times I clean it

Your cowl seal is probably bad as well, mine does the same thing and it will be getting replaced soon. Also, cut the bottom pinched part of that tube off so it can't trap dirt anymore

There is a bunch of electrical on that side of the engine. Better leave the tube. If you want you can cut the end off but if its clean it should function fine.

What I did to mine was got some tubing about the same diameter and hose clamped it to where the original tube went. Then bought some wire best and wrapped it around the bottom open end of the hose, to keep things from going up in there. More free-flowing than the original bottom clamped tube. Less likely to clog up too. Haven't had that problem since.
