Ok, Vailant abandoned the US market over a decade ago and pretty much left us high and dry. Vailant specific parts are no longer generally available. You can contact the remaining US rep.

I have contacted them yesterday called back with same answer as yours thanks for your time

Your only option would be to remove the glass and fill the space with a piece of heavy gauge sheet metal or take it to a glass company and have them replace the glass. I'd go with the sheet metal. No other boiler has a viewing port into the ch***** *****ke this.
