    Not helping yourself with that reply, diesel or petrol, engine, year, 3 or 5dr, etc etc all these things are relevant, so for future reference, please provide the info :)

    Assume its water, any water stains or wetness in the headlining?

    Ok so its just the sides or the whole bench is soaked?

    Is there any signs of water ingress around the door openings?

    Has it been raining where you are?

    My gf had something like this where the rear footwell would be wet after it rained and turned out that her rear brake light was not fitted on tightly enough and water was leaking in through there and soaking the back of the car

    It could be rubber seals around the windows..maybe.

    Did your mates have any bottled water with them? If so, they could be having a laugh at your expense, and they poured water onto the seats.

    I had a similar thing with an old Renault hatchback. Water ingress through duff seals running along the floor of the hatchback, down behind the seats to the footwell. Worth checking the rear and tire well, as well as the footwell for dampness.

    does the rear screen washer work with the same pressure it previously has? if not, the pipe may be split or disconnected - leaking water into the interior. Failing that my money's on a rear light cluster leaking.
