It's a fiber board of some kind, the wood part. Is that what is warped? I have no idea if you can flatten those... If I had to imagine how you could flatten warped wood it would involve wetting it, possibly soaking it until its saturated and holding it down flat with something heavy while it slowly dried out, not quickly as in using a heater to increase temps and shorten drying time,but slowly, as in room temp until its dry as a popcorn fart. Soaking fiberboard is usually a bad idea though. You may be better off to just run to home depot and get a couple 4x4 sheets of thin fiberboard or something easy to work with, then use your old panels as a model for cutting out new panels.
