AC water intrusion when heavy rain

Pretty heavy dripping from ac when rain is heavy and sideways (coming into roof ac from the side I pictured it)

Wiring inside ac above filter all wet as well.

There is a puddle of water underneath the black bracket where the whole ac assembly is attached through roof.

Any ideas to remedy folks?

No. The condenser and evaporator are completely isolated from each other. Rain or water blowing in The condenser will not come inside.

Agreed.

And thank you Todd, I tightened all four of them (2 of them where quite loose) and no more intrusion. Thanks for the tip and easy fix!
