i think you need to undo the two 17mm bolts on top and add some shims but not to many as you will over tighten the bearings i think

As the top swivel pin wears down through use, the wheel will move more and more freely. To keep the resistance against turning within the specified values, you will have to remove shims from under the top swivel pin. Removing a shim means the pin runs further down into swivel housing, increasing the resistance.
