Check the drag link , it has 2 adjustable ends that have large screw type  threaded ends that can be tightened to reduce the play, if the buttons are popped up then they need to be adjusted. If you have a manual will show how this is adjusted, but basically loosen up the end squeeze down the end play buttons which pop up when too much end play and tighten them down again.
