I have a small but annoying drip on the right side under the dash...I am thinking its either from the seal around the windshield or perhaps from the outside area under the windshield wipers..where does this area drain to?

The plenum cavities below the cowl vent grilles drain off to the sides, into the side shroud cavity outboard of the kickpad vents, and there's a drain hole for those areas on each side, at the bottom, just rearward of the #1 body bolt. If the drain hole is plugged (which is not uncommon - leaves, debris, etc.), water will rise in the cavity and leak into the car through the bottom of the kickpad vent opening.

If you are sure it's a drip from somewhere under the dash, pull out you glovebox and have someone hose down the windshield and wiper. You should be able to spot where the water is coming from.

I've got the same problem. My windshield gasket is dryrotted and the water leaks in at the corners.
