Play in one of my mount drives

See attached pictures, the rectangular unit has movement which allows the gears to come out of touch which isnt great, any ideas how I tighten it?

That looks like the dec drive? If so there should be an M5 cap head screw in from the top of the saddle that holds it on, it should be in a slot, loosten it off and adjust up, then tighten.

Yup - the rectangular bit needs to be tightened so it doesn't move and keeps the cogs engaged - if it's been over tightened before then it may have stripped threads which would need re-tapping and fresh bolts. :)
