Wild Thing is right,,,it just needs adjustment....

CRS=the screw driver adjust is left hand threads for tighter I think and the nut is right hand to lock it down or vice versa)
hold the screw firm, release the lock nut and turn the screw counter clockwise,,,it will only turn about 1/4-1/2 and be tight (enough),,,,then lock down the nut while holding the screw in that position...
5 minutes,,,it's good for another 10 years with no left-right free play

there is a second adjustment,,,there is a big spanner type nut where the shaft goes in,,,,that adjusts the end play for worm gear and shaft,,,just nudge that clockwise (5*'s?) and the wheel won't feel loosy-goosy,,,while turning it...
(puts a tiny bit of constant wheel turning resistance in)
