You get water from using the A/C right? If that's the case what happened was you have a cracked evaporator housing. Its supposed to catch all the water condensation from the evaporator and dump it out a drain underneath the car. Repair the housing and make sure the drain is clear.

make sure to check the drain befor you do anything else to the car. you don't want to start spending money replacing parts when all the problem is a bug got in the drain and died causing it to clog. the drain is usually located on the firewall passenger side near the bottom. you know, the place where you usually see the puddle of water when the car is parked with the a/c on. if its not dripping like it usually is, then its probably clogged.

I honestly would'nt run the A/C until you get it fixed. Otherwise you are going to end up having a bad odor in your car.....

Slick has a point, GAs seem to have a bad issue with getting mold and mildew in their carpet when wet. I take mine to the beach alot and have a prob with it and have to get it cleaned once a month.
