Done that too!
They've changed the design of the back door latches since the 2010 model and that caught me out
The pineapple chunk of rubber only works at close-quarters.It was the chrome thing that did the deed but they cant shield that as it has to click into the latch.
A plastic clip on door edge protector on the left hand door is the only way round I can see

If the paints not damaged it should be easy to get a paintless repair done by one of the smart repairers.

Its a van thing,pch.
The rear doors (not sidedoors) can only open in sequence.The problem with MK3 is if you close them out of sequence -or the wind catches them - the small offside door catch will clobber the nearside door and you will be sadSad
