Hello and welcome to JA!!!! the first thing to check, there is a weatherstrip just under the cowl area. right where the right wiper arm sets. this weatherstrip is supposed to sit on the bottom of the glass. but they will fall off and cause water to run in the a/c box, and then in the vehicle. here is a picture. the arrow in the picture shows the weatherstrip seal

Reply to goodwrench9124's Post: yes ive checked this weatherstrip before, its on good and still leaks?
Expert:  goodwrench9124 replied 6 years ago.

ok, there is a waterdeflector that gm makes, that will deflect the water away from the cowl area. this part was orginally made for monte carlos and grand prix's. but wil work on impala's. i have used this deflector before and normally takes care of the leak. it is easy to install and is cheap to buy.
