Default E46 rear lens damage

Discovered today that one of my rear lenses has been smashed. There's essentially a single crack in the plastic (see attached pic). Is this an NCT fail?
And if so do I need to replace the entire unit rather than just the lens (it seems from looking at it that the whole thing is sealed together as a unit)?

Should not be a fail.
I should have perfect s/h ones but if you're gonna change go for LED ones
