It's your cabin air filter leaking.

I'll grab a link and post it up.

Here it is: Third from the bottom, on the right.

"Want to know how to change the Passenger Compartment Air Filter? Click on the filter and see. "

http://impalahq.naioa.com/index2.html

The whole thing is a 15-20 minute job. Might as well replace the filter when you're in there, only costs about ten bucks... it'll make the air blowing into your car a little cleaner.

not all imps came with them installed, i know mine didnt. since i found that out a few years ago, i have made sure there is always a good one in there, though.

Follow up question on Cabin Air Filter leaking water

I checked the cabin air filter during my last oil change and found it was wet. I reviewed the link in this thread on how to change the filter to make sure I was doing it correctly (which I was). I called a local dealer and they told me it could be the weather strip which sits underneath the hood and sits right above the filter. It is very similar to the one that is in the engine compartment and has to be pulled off half way to gain access to the filter. I did notice one end of the weather strip underneath by the filter was a bit loose. Does this sound right that this could be the source of the leak since everything else was assembled correctly? I do not want to ignore this. Thanks for everyone's help!
