[Vwdiesel] steering shaft bearing

Sunday, while messing around with the glow plug relay, I found a bearing on
the steering wheel shaft just above the U-joint where the steering linkage
changes direction and goes through the floor. I slid the bearing up the
shaft and pressed it into the tube surrounding the shaft. I don't expect it
to stay there. The bearing looked like it was in good shape. Has anyone used
a hose clamp on the steering shaft (or some other securing device) to hold
the bearing in place between the shaft and the tube?

I'd really prefer to not separate the steering linkage for a replacement.
