Nope, needs replaced. About all you could do otherwise is put something else over it like vinyl or plastic and paint it. If your selling it, Id just leave it alone myself. If you try to cover it up cheap, a buyer may wonder what else you hillbilly rigged. When they crack, its usually because its gotten brittle and anything you do will just make it worse...like shattering the whole thing. Most Id do is put a small bead of superglue along it to keep wind and water out.

I wouldn't mess with it. Some glues will melt plastic and stick to your fingers causeing one big mess (super glue slow set for example)

I only use Zap from a model shop. You can get it thin or as thick as you want. I like the thick. Takes longer to dry, but dont run.

Contact a sign supply dealer or a display or lighted sign shop and get some IPS Weld-On 3 for Acrylic. It's a clear liquid and flows like water. Sign shops use it for welding acrylic together. It's applied with a small plastic bottle with a blunt hypodermic needle in the cap. It works by capillary action. Just place the tip against the top of the crack, squeeze ever so gently to allow the cement to flow into the crack. A small drop the size of a pin head can weld a good piece of acrylic. They may be willing to do the job for you.
