And the car steers fine even with the bolt totally absent (just push the wheel don't pull).

A loose nut behind the wheel is a simple fix.

And sometimes they're a bitch to remove. Found this one at the PAP on the floorboard. Someone must have wanted the steering wheel pretty bad...

No I don't...only stock/oem ones pulled from MBs at the pick a part.

dak503 Thank you Nobby Reno is going to help me out. Thanks guys for your help It didn't look all that good 10 years ago. And I removed it at least 5 times since then. Last time I forgot to reattach the vacuum hose for the economy gauge. I know it doesn't
do much. But I spend a lot of time making sure everything works and this not working is driving me crazy and I don't think I'm going to be able to tighten the bolt properly again.

I ruined the socket with my ham-handed attempts to remove that bolt and had to drill and use an extractor. After, I salvaged the bolt by welding a hex head on it and used that jerry rig until @reno4u2 kindly sent me a proper bolt from his seemingly endless supply.
