You can drill a small hole in the thick side of the bush and use a grub screw to hold the insert.

The idea is good but i doubt it will withstand the drilling those bushings seems fragile i already tested i tried to melt one broken in order to weld another as i have 3 shafts but none is complete the other two i dismantled few years back. Yes stupid i know that i figured now that this part should be not dismantled. Looking more on the bushing place on the shaft you can notice it its like U shaped i think if they factory sealed this two points they used liquid like silon. As the material was sticking outsie the holes on the main shaft where they a are bind together the holes are 2mm in diameter only.

When you assemble the hollow shaft and the solid shaft together,
does not the nylon ring stay in the groove even if it is broken ? If
the nylon ring stays in the groove (held/trapped in position between
the two shafts) then it should work just the same... hmm ?

I guess the question is whether the bushes transfer any of the force between the 2 shafts and would you feel any slack in the column when driving ? I would say not, I would say the bushes are there to ensure the column could collapse even if it became corroded, something that you eluded to earlier. Wink

What about polyamide hot melt sticks i can use a glue gun and use the holes to fill it in so it will be like factory made. I am still not sure what type of sticks to use as there are many on market with different properties for the glue gun so they have the properties of original but i am sure they used the same holes and the very same application when they put it together i photoed in detail where you can see it. It was clearly not solid form before.

That looks like it was cast in place to me indeed. In that case, try getting your hands on some ABS or Nylon 3dprinting filament.. takes a lot of heat (200+C) to get it flowing but with care you could probably get it to work..
