2005 300C Driver's Autodim Mirror

I have looked around here but cannot find both answers to a problem with the mirror on my car. It is the fogging/spider lining happening.

The questions I have are:

What is the part number for just replacing the glass (I have read that it is possible without replacing the whole assembly)?

What would be the best and most cost effective source for this part?

Thanks everyone!

Surprised there is no recall or TSB on this?

The fogging is caused by hairline cracks in the glass that cause the dimming fluid to leak out. Probably related to the cold I would think.

Does the 2006 300c come with these? I don't think I've seen mine ever do it and it is an option if I wanna buy the dimming mirrors or would it be too much work for such a small piece

The DIM sensor is the same sensor as for the autodim inside mirror. I was under the impression if you had autodim on the inside mirror then the outside ones also had it.
