Default Rear slider exterior discoloration/warpage?

On my 2007 with the power rear window, there is a kind of whitish discoloration above and below the glass on the exterior.. this seems to be a plastic and while I have scrubbed it some with soap, I am afraid to use anything too harsh (such as solvents) on it due to its plastic-ness.

Also- there is some warpage of that plastic as well. It has to be seen from the side, but it is easily noticable compared to the flat glass all around it.

Is there a method to clean that discoloration? The warping of the plastic would require replacement I understand-- but can those pieces be purchased separately or are they part of the sliding window assembly?

I have seen other Rams with the same issues around town.

Thanks in advance!

Aplogies for the pictures--- <--not a photographer

you could try sosme mothers back to black on it since its plastic. from the pic it just looks to be weathered. if that doesnt work i seen a product at the auto stores that you can use to restore the finish of weathered plastic. its in a spray can but i cant think of the name of it. i used it before on an old mazda pickup i owned and it made the bumper look brand new.
