Take the free wheel off Undo the 3 screws holding the lock washer on and remove washer Tighten the nut behind the washer until you have no play and the wheel turns smoothly. Reassemble.
If you want you can take the brake caliper off. Then you can undo the wheel bearing nut and remove the hub and regrease the bearings and reassemble. Use a waterproof grease
