well let's first start off with the brand and model pedal you have and maybe a few pics.

When you say loose is it the pedal board that feels loose or there feels like play when you are using it. If it's the latter it's probably your u-joints on the rod that connects the slave to the actually beater what needs replacing.

check for play in the linkage. u-joints end up being the week points many times.

So - what do you do if the u-joints are bad? Can you get replacements?

Yeah just buy a new arm. I know I've read quite a few posts here over the years touting how good these were, might be worth a look
