3rd Brake Light - Just the Lens

I've searched, so my apologies if this has already been covered at length, but does anyone sell just the lens/reflector for the 3rd brake light?

I don't see the point to replacing the entire unit when it works perfectlfy fine. Naturally, my lens broke recently and fell out. Looking for a simple and inexpensive fix.

Thanks

The 3rd light itself is only around $30-40. Might as well replace it all since it might be a pain to get the same seal as from factory when just changing the lens. It will probably be a hassle to try to fix it like that. I would go for the light fixture itself.

Typically inexpensive is not in the BMW vocabulary.

It is very cheap, and the lens is bonded/melted to the housing. No way to replace just the lens.
