So I’ve narrowed my leak down to this hole behind the fuse box (picture attached). Anyone able to tell me what it’s purpose is? I need to stop this leak and plan on sealing it, unless someone can tell me another way to mitigate this.

I'd remove fenders. Holes like these had rubber plugs installed. They get old and can get pushed out and produce leaks. I reseal these plugs with rtv.

Also, some of the metal seams sealed with calk from the factory can begin to leak. With the fender off, these seams can be resealed with rtv.

Cleaned my ‘05 mudflap on driver side and it stopped water from coming thru that hole.

I’ve already sealed the seams and taken the mud flap off and cleaned it along with everything in the door jam and wheel well. At this point I don’t care where it’s coming from, the hole shall be sealed. Thank you all for your help.

Pretty sure that should read "fender lining," right? Much easier job. :)
When I did this on my Honda Civic last year, the fenders were off. ¯\(ツ)
Funny how the same problems exist on other Honda vehicles.
