Just replaced extruder parts because of a melt down. All new parts but the PINDA position definitely looks wrong. Is it a bad part or is it OK?

It seems that the PINDA holder on the extruder was bent during your "melt down" accident. Maybe you can straighten this area with a hot air gun with a lot of care, because the sensor does not switch exactly in the angled position. In the worst case, the extruder part must be reprinted.

Or just replace it.  I have had a couple go wonky with heat.  I would print another one in ABS or PC Blend.
