On my am classic rear hub, the cassette body is loose when pulling on it with the cassette installed or removed. The axle is well tightened...

There is about 1,5mm play when I pull the body and push it back.

Any thoughts how i can solve this?

Already? Geez these have low mileage!

How do I dismount the cassette body? Do I need to removed the 12x142 axle?

Pull the axle and try using a 10mm hex wrench to snug up the freehub body. It could simply be that the gigantic hollow bolt holding it together is loose. You may want to pull the bolt, thoroughly degrease it and put a couple drops of Loctite on the threads.
