Water Leak

Problem added: Jan 25, 2013 (7 years ago)
Water leak underneath car on the passenger side, look's like it's coming from inside the dash. Water pump, thermostat and hoses replaced. I can see the dripping water only there's a skid plate in the way and I swear it has to be leaking from a hose going inside the car in the dash?
Any thought or ideas will be greatly appreciated,
Thank you

Possibly a heater hose or the heater matrix itself?

Check no blockage in bulkhead drains allowing water to build up and come in through the pollen / cabin filter .

Thank you Jota, i went on youtube and saw that a heater matrix is a small radiator inside an area of the car that is not visible. Looks like it could be the culprit of the leak. I've seen rust in the big radiator so this is probably leaking too or the hoses on the inside where i can't see. I'll try to find out if i can remove the matrix and take a look at it.
Thanks again..

Thank you whittingehame, i'll check this and the matrix. I didn't know either of these solutions and this site is awesome.
Thank's again,
