If you are 100% sure that it's acrylic, then it might be possible to use an acrylic "weld", which is what's used to join acrylic seams. Other than that, you could probably just buy a sheet of acrylic and cut it to fit.

yeah - your best bet would be to swap out the window - just get a chunk of plexi to fix it..

they should - thy home hardware - they have the most. And as to the size you need, measure first, then have them cut it.

It's usually not difficult to find a decent replacement for clear plastics. Any decent hardware store/home supply center should carry it. You didn't list location, but assuming North America, you should be fine. I like acrylic over others, but for this application it doesn't really matter too much I guess. Also, if you bring a template, a lot of places will cut it for you if you don't have the tools.

Damn you and my slow typing Tulatin!

I know that OSH is usually friendly enough to cut things like that for customs and that they carry plexiglass. It's a little expensive for plexi there. Home depot carries much cheaper things like some acrylics and that they SHOULD be able to cut a square for you but don't expect to get it done.
