    clear water leaking inside cab, drivers side, getting floor wet

    2000 chevy silverado 3/4 ton pickup. 180k. Clear water is coming from above gas pedal and brake pedal area. Does this truck have weep holes that may be clogged? If so where are they located? This happens with no AC or defroster running, just vent air . Any help appreciated. Thanks
