Your best bet would be to get a second hand one.
But you could try this trick. Many years ago the same thing happened to me many miles from home on a pi**ing wet dat whilst driving a Cavalier which has a similar setup. I got a piece of polythene from a carrier bag and placed it over the ball and pressed the cup over the top - it ended up lasting 3 months. I have also heard of people squeezing the cup with a pair of vice grips to make it a neater fit. One other trick is to melt the edges of the plastic cup with a soldering iron. None of these are a safe fix but might get you out of the perverbial hole
