Unhappy Noisy lifter on 88 190E 2.3

So i have a 1988 190E 2.3, with 178000 miles on it and in the last 4000 miles it started tapping in the top end. i took the valve cover off and sure enough i have a loose lifter. Is there any way to adjust the lifters on this thing or should i just get a new one? A buddy also told me it might be a spring. how do you tell if it's a spring or a lifter? and can you adjust them?
