Unhappy Clio RSI 1.8 Mk1 1997 water leak drivers side

Hi, I have a Clio RSI 1.8, and have been driving it for a couple of months now, but unfortunately it has been leaking from the drivers side. It is only leaking while driving, but when the car sits, it doesn't. I have cleaned the windshield drain pipes, and been searching around the car for a month now, but still can't find the place it leaks from. The only place from where it drips is this plastic piece which i think is the actual source of the leaking, but i can't open it and also i don't know what this thing does (picture).
So if anyone can help me with this problem, or at least what this plastic piece does. Thank you in advance.

Please correct me if i'm wrong but, behind there isn't that where the heater matrix is?

That yellow plastic shield looks like it's held in place with clips, can you remove to reveal the source.

I'm sure somebody more technical than me may be able to clear this up for you.
