wet floor mat on drivers side

My 1998 S70 seems to have a leak that is accumulating on the drivers side floor mat, any ideas as to where it may be coming from. it looks like water - no smells or color

Hi Nimi, welcome to the site.

Do you have a good coolant in the system? Usually a wet floor means your heater core has leaked bad enough to wet your floor. If it's not that you need to open your hood and make sure you have a lot of leaves, etc. piled up at your window base causing water to get in the firewall somehow. The last deal may be getting some condensation from the AC in the car but that usually happens on the passenger side.
