That's how mine looked too. I had to carefully insert and snap in the new rubber one. It lined up correctly and the little nubs to the left and right of the "center dividers" were aligned to press the little buttons under the square covers.

Great info guys! I'm ordering several for mine. It's not broken yet. It's showing signs of use through.

Thanks for part numbers. I installed a replacement cover yesterday. I have another as a spare. I'll keep it in a zip bag. Another item to add to the extra parts bin.
