CV Boot Clamp Saab 9-5

I had a front wheel off today on my Saab 9-5 and came to find that the cv boot had slipped its clamp. It's on the smaller diameter end of the outer shaft, and very little grease has escaped. I'm wondering whether I can get a tool and just put a new clamp on it. The boot doesn't appear torn. Any advice?

Of course you can. For the time being if you must drive it, I'd put some nylon wire-ties on to keep in and out, what should be kept in and out.
