Too much play and rattle in Steering Wheel

I have recently been driving. Noticed that there is alot of play. Sometimes my the steering wheel would lock up. It would make a snapping sound when I turned the steering wheel and would have the loose play again. Later in the day I heard and felt the steering wheel rattling. If I put pressure on my steering wheel. I can feel the intermediate shaft moving with it freely up and down. When I look under the hood. I see that there is a part popped out of the steering column connected to the intermediate shaft. What is this part called. I need to get back on the road.

It's a 20 dollar fix if you do it yourself. Lower steering column bearing. I will find the link and post it momentarily.

Thanks so much! Is there a way to disconnect the top part of the shaft without taking the steering box out?
