Ok, what you have is a plastic cover at the bottom of the HVAC case, Then a small drian hose for the evaporator water drain, That hose is either blocked, cracked or has come loose allowing evap water to drain on the floor, it is NOT the heater core, you would be leaking antifreeze. The fix? the center consol is removed and the hose inspected or repaired, Trim polate removed from around the shifter, then the consol side covers and then 3 screws on each side of the consol.I have included a link below showing this hose which winds up being kind of to the right of the gas pedal going through the floor of the car. Not a big repair, not expensive.
