My Grandmother has 1995 Sentra and I just fixed this problem for her. She went to 3 places and no one would be bothered with it. Open the hood and you see there are 2 plastic panels where the wipers are. The wipers are on one plastic panel- but you don't have to remove that one, just the one on the passengers side. In order to get that off you need to take off the rubber weather striping that runs the width of the car- this has 8-10 snaps that just pull out with very little effort. Now remove the plastic panel- that kind of pops out & the might be 3 plastic tacks you can pop ou with a flat head screw driver. There is a oblong hole exposed now and if you look into it far to the left and just out of reach is a hole that vents the heat- the seal all around that hole on the outside is dryrotted or the silicone is pealed away. I used a quick dry silicone, squeezed gobs of it on paint stirring stick and reached in there and spread it all arounf the joint. I just kept lobbing it on. The farthest side was hard to reach but i would put it on the stick and just use the vent to scrap it off and let it drop down to the joint. I let it dry 30 minutes. Then, to be sure, I sprayed the stuff on TV that seals gutters and things on the inside of the vent. You could see and inside of the vent there was a small seal. You can also get the plastic coat spray can and you have to turn the can every which way to spray it. I put the hose in the hole (not the vent the air blows out of) and let it run 10 minutes- no water!I also should mention I did this before with the hose and water was pouring in from lust below the glove box
The door, window weatherstrippeng could need to be replaced, the weatherstripparound the trunk could need to be replaced as well. Also there are drain holes in the floor, one of these could have come loose and may need to be pushed back in, to get a good seal. The drain holes are plugged with a rubber plug. Hope this helps
