It's wear and tear item, and it's probably cost 10 max

Very doubtful to be honest.Would likely be classed wear and tear.You would also need to remove and strip the strut to change it.

Thanks again-do you think silicone sealant/similar would sort it.

Silicone not the answer ,just leave as it is or replace with the new ones .If you have basic tools you can do it your self ,it's an easy job once you remove all covers and carpet from the boot .

you talking about this part right




i guess yours look similar to this
