SL water leaks

Hi folks,
On a 1975 SL, when you run water down the vent grills at the cowl, it ends up on the floor. It appears to be coming out of the lower heat AC housing. The left and right condensor drain tubes are clear and intact. When the air is on, the condensation water runs out of the tubes. Are ther any other drain tubes or holes from the air intake grills? If so, where do they exit the car? I have owned this car for over 25 years and have had a water problem for a long time, but am just now starting to hunt it down.
Thanks for the help
