its pretty hard finding parts for that year..I have an 2002 an looking for the front rack extender..not made any more....your best bet is trying Ebay...or a dealer with old stock if they have it....as far as the crack..they have a welder for doing plastic....try calling a body shop or motorcycle shop an see where they get it done ..if they do....

or buy this..dont know how good it works..but never know

There are many good 2 part epoxies on the market. Can you access the bottom of the cracks? i recommend if possible, get a piece of either thin plastic or metal and epoxy and clamp that to the bottom of the crack and just work epoxy into the top of the crack. let it cure 24 hours then sand for cosmetic appearance

Old but still a good thread. I work with HDPE lots and parts made from it are not good for gluing. This material is not a glue friendly material like PVC or ABS is. Some people can weld it, but I'll admit that I'm one of those. There are some products out there that claim will glue it, but I'll remain skeptical of that. :(
