Hi there,

If you can't find a replacement then I suggest that you use clear Araldite to repair the window.

If you do it on a nice warm day any moisture caught between the two layers should have been driven out; and as the window cools the negative pressure will tend to suck the Araldite into the damaged area as it sets.

Hope this helps.allthumbz

Best regards,
