If its a white lens then it does not form part of the test so would not be a fail.
If its red and providing there is a reflector,or amber then repair tape is acceptable providing it shows the correct color for that light.
If its a white lensed indicator providing it has an amber bulb will not fail.

Don't bin the old one.

It should be repairable.

I've thought about using a precision cutting tool like a Dremel disc to make a neat aperture and then fit in a precision cut piece of any roughly suitable lens from a breaker.

Then put that assembly back on ready for the next mishap and keep the perfect one in storage, maybe to appease a fussy M o T tester.
