Need easy fix for rear window on soft top

I have a tinted rear window for my soft top that has about a 6-7 inch split or cut. What can I use to fix it? Is there a silicone glue that might work? What about a transparent duct tape?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Not sure about repairing it but I see oem soft top windows for sale on craigslist pretty regularly.

You could try awning repair tape. It is a thick clear vinyl tape that is UV resistant.. You should be able to find it at any place that sells RV supplies or on the internet.

Since so few posted a suggestion, let me close this out by saying that I decided to give transparent duct tape a try. If that doesn't work, I like the awning repair tape idea. Last resort will be replacing it (unless I can find one on CL, but not likely in Michigan).
