cracked footswitch ring

Howdy. I have an LT I bought used.  I noticed one of the footswitch's clear plastic washer/ring is cracked.  I fixed the crack using "plastic surgery" plastic glue.  After that, I noticed a 2nd crack started to form.  The cracks are following the 4 lines underneath the ring.  There are these 4 lines that divide the area into 4 sectors. 

 

I follow the "if it ain't broke, don't fix" saying.  So how bad/dangerous is it to have this cracked washer/ring?  Can my footswitch fail? 

 

thanks!

I'm eventually gonna need new brake pads on my ride...I don't know exactly when that'll be, I just know it's coming.  All I can do is periodically check and see how much meat is left... and when they're shot, they're shot.

 

Anything can fail... whether it actually will or not is anybody's guess. But Joe Average User will not be able to predict from afar if, or when what you've described might become an issue.

 

If it's gonna keep you up nights, open a service ticket and see what they tell you. Otherwise, just play... if it craps out one day, deal with it...but worrying about it every day between now and then won't make it any less likely to happen.

lmao.  I mean my question is that does the washer play a structural role in the FS...Like if it just shatters, does the button fall in?  that's all.
