A new bearing is an easy swap. Unbolt the steering shaft, slide the old one out of place and pull it, then reinstall the new one. Should just take a few minutes if you're handy at all with tools.

There are a number of posts on this subject already but not in the powertrain section - steering or interior I think. That is where I found the idea for a worm drive hoseclamp on the white (or green?) plastic collar on the column under the dash. It doesn't take much tightening to remove most of the movement. It worked for me at least for now.
