No. You need to find the drain hose from the evaporator case, and clear the blockage from the hose and/or the case drainpipe it attaches to. Usually fishing up the hose from underneath (outside) with a piece of wire will do.
There is no drain hose however, just a nipple type plug that has to be cleaned out. It is hard to get to but easy to do. Look on the passenger side firewall about 1/2 way up and you'll see it. It just pulls off and the water will flow out that is backed up. Replace it when you are done.
I had the same water leakage problem in my 2000 grand prix and they told me that it was that hose blocked off. I cleaned it and it still didn't help. It ended up being bad weather stripping on the black platic cowl that lays on the windshield under the wipers. I removed it and replaced the weather stripping and havent had a problem since.
I had this problem, and the shop manual is just about useless to get it fixed. There is a rubber elbow, about 3/4" in diameter and 1-1/2" proud, that is pressed on to a port on the firewall. Make sure the engine is cool, because you have to reach down behind the engine on the passenger side of the car, near the exhaust takedown. It's about halfway down the firewall. I couldn't actually see it, but I felt water on the engine underneath it. When I pulled it out, it had a chunk of lint in it, and it was trapped where the boot points downward. I celeaned it out and put it back. I had to feel on the firewall for the port (it's metal and sticks out about a 1/2" from the firewall), and just pressed it back on.
There is no evaporator on that model.
Before you remove the evaporator core from a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville you need to have the air pressure discharged. You will then need to remove the AC unit. You will need to remove some screws before you can remove the evaporator.

Remove drain plug from oil pan (lowest point of engine), while that's draining remove oil filter. Replace oil filter then replace drain plug after oil has completed draining. After everything is securely tightened add oil through the fill cap on the valve cover.
A person needing to remove the ac evaporator will need to have special equipment to handle the Freon. Then the system will need to be vacuumed because there can not be any dirt or moisture in the system when it is put back together or it will not function.
It is attached to the back wall of evaporator. You have to remove the glove compartment, blower unit and evaporator to get access to the expansion valve.
You must remove the evaporator case from behind the glovebox and disassemble it. The expansion valve is mounted to the evaporator.
The Air Conditioner Evaporator looks like a smaller version of a car radiator. In it, liquid compressed refrigerant (R-134A usually) expands into a gas and cools down significantly (evaporates). This allows it to remove heat from the air passing through the evaporator's fins.
From under the hood, recover the refrigerant and disconnect battery, remove the drier, two ac line connections to evaporator core, two heater hoses from heater core, vacuum line that goes to firewall and evaporator case nuts at firewall. From the inside of the car, remove center console, center the steering wheel, lock steering and remove steering column assembly. Remove pillar trim, kick panels, defrost trim, remove bolts along the top and sides of dash, disconnect any vacuum lines that go from the ac controls to the evaporator case, unplug any electrical connectors that prevent the right side of the dash from being swung over to allow access of the evaporator case. Use a tie down strap to secure the dash out of the way if needed while accessing the evaporator case. There is a picture of a Mustang with the dash removed at DenLorsTools.com in the Tech Artice How To section. Remove the evaporator case from the vehicle and replace the evaporator, put two ounces of refigerant oil directly into the replacement evaporator. Reverse removal procedures, evacuate and recharge system.

To remove the evaporator core on a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville, you will need to remove the dashboard. An alternative method is to access the core underneath the hood. The core can be found at the passenger side near the strut tower. Once the area is accessed, you will need to remove some of the firewall to properly remove the core.
