Ok, call a dealer and get them to look at it.

Is this just one damper (strut) or are you mentioning multiple failures such as boot strut and suspension shock???? If it’s just the boot strut it should simply be a warranty replacement, these struts do sometimes fail which is why I have said a few times I don’t trust them on bonnets unless they incorporate some form of mechanical lock build in...

Just the nsr damper. only once so far. The tail gate dampers seem to jam some times when closing have way down?

When you say jamming, do you mean it won't go past a certain point or it just kinda sits there. Because I've found on all the mk8s I've driven, more than any other car that it's really easy to close the boot with just enough force to get it to stick halfway. I don't muck about now and give it a good yank with the handle on the inside to make sure it closes.

Funnily enough mine did this yesterday , struggled to shut the tailgate the offside one was sticking. Bit of silicone spray seemed to sort it
