Driver'sWindscreen Wiper linkage/assembly

I have a 2005 Megane Scenic II. At the bottom of the driver's windscreen wiper, there's a circular hole which a short metal bar clips into (this bar makes the wiper move). On mine, whatever holds the bar into the hole has rusted, and it's separated. To replace it Renault say i have to buy the whole unit, instead of just the short bar. Replacement unit costs over 100! Anyone know of a cheaper way to fix this problem?
I've attached some photos to show what the problem is. Any help gratefully received!

Problem solved! Bought some new bearings from e-Bay at a cost of 6.90 for two. This also came with a drill and a thread cutter, so unbelievable value! Had to remove old bearing shell and a bit of filing - but completed the job in just under an hour. Driver's wiper now working again - at a cost of 6.90 instead of over 100 for a new assembly from Renault, or at least 40 from a breaker's yard.
