steering column bearing replacement

the steering column bearings
sound like they are eating them selves up,
even if the steering wheel goes smooth
(although slightly feeling the vibrations).

it has been like this for a while and it is not worsening.

could there however be security implications,
like a suddenly blocking steering wheel ?
has anyone had this issue before ?
how to get the bearings out ?
which replacement bearings do fit ?

the lower bearing, which is probably still ok, is on heritage parts:
