I've seen a Hose Clamp and even a Zip Tie on the Shaft to keep it from
sliding down.

On my 1981 jetta I am having a problem with the bearing at the bottom end of
the steering wheel shaft, near the universal joint. What is it that is
supposed to keep that bearing up inside the sleeve? It just won't stay up
there and I don't feel like getting too violent with it to seat it up
further quite yet.
