You could go to the mfr and get a replacement or perhaps google it.

ash3000,
It look as if the panel is not all that complex and it can be reproduced by most any commercial plastics store. They will charge you for a sheet of lexan or the like and then charge for the time to cut and drill it out to the original spec's or a new custom spec. I would consider a new custom spec with like one 200mm or 240mm fan assuming that the clearance for it is there on the inside. What you will find though is that buy the time you pay for all this you likely will be able to just buy a new side panel with fans and clear panel for less. Heck likely you can upgrade to a discounted new case and then have the fun of building the system up in a new case. Or you can wear the crack like a badge of honor and display it all glued together and not worry about it? First off try to contact the manufacturer directly.

I'd say you should try repairing it with superglue first, unless you're running a mini-furnance it should hold just fine. Or you can be like my hero Red Green and fix it with Duct Tape
