If anyone has experience with a railing like this one, please tell me how to fix this very loose newel post.

1. I assume the bottom of the newel post has a dowel going into the bullnose step? House was built in 1954, if that makes a difference.
2. Do you think the dowel is screwed into the bullnose step from the bottom (i.e., the bullnose step would need to be removed and put on its side to tight/replace the screw)?
3. I assume I'll need to lift the volute off the newel post in order to fix the problem. Do I need to detach the volute from the rest of railing first? Or is there a better disconnect point? Or can I leave the railing whole?
