Rubber boot falling from wipershaft drive rod

Hi everybody.

The piece labelled #6 as deteriorate, making the drive rod (#7) fall from the wipershaft mechanism and causing a no windshield wiper condition (and now it's raining a lot in Azores).

Does anybody knows how the rubber boot (#6) is attached to the drive rod???

As a quick fix, I drilled a hole throw the drive rod, then run a piece of wire with a bolt on the drive rod to split the wire in two and tight it on the other side of the fixed ball. Better solution for this???

Best regards
