I don't know what's happened to that, but it looks in dreadful condition. The plastic seems as though it's been damaged or deformed. By heat? Could it have been accidentally left in a hot car for example?
Best regards, John

It looks done for to me. A replacement one might be a good answer, perhaps even with an insurance claim.
Best regards, John
