Look Keo axle/bearing problems

Just purchased a new pair of Look Keo Carbon Blades (with Titanium axle).

Only ridden about 100km/62mi in them, and the right pedal has developed a bit of play in the axle/bearing (where pedal connects to crank)- basically, you can wiggle the pedal slightly up/down and fore/aft with your fingers, whereas the left pedal is solid (as were my previous Shimano SPD/SL pedals). All the mountings seem to be tightly screwed on.

Has anyone else had the same problem and have a fix?

Those pedals have 'adjustable' bearings. Adjust them. It's also a common problem that we see quite often on the entry level Looks.

How do I adjust them? I can't see any screw?

The Look carbon blades are their top of the range pedal, would have thought they'd fix it.

Cheers
