Direct Connect loose?

I've got a 2004 LeMond Nevada City, it's got this little "wiggle" in the headset...aka the bars move a tiny tiny bit if pushed on from front-to-rear. Hitting a bump in the road causes a little "click" as well.

My question: Can I thighten this via the hex under the plastic cover on top of the headset? Or is there some other method?

Grasshopper, www.parktool.com has the drill in the repair section.How you adjust a HS depends o if it is threaded or threadless.

For the love of your headset and head tube, get that fixed before things get oval.
