Cut it to length the mount it in a vice and cut a slice into the tube with 2 cuts so you take out 2 or 3mm of the tube.
You will have to try knocking out the remaining sleeve thats in the pole, try drilling the spots that you call spot welds (actually pressed ) then it should slid down. Now fit the new sleeve and rivet in place, file any bures and the jobs done.
