(Selecting the correct adjusting shim for the output shaft)

It is necessary to adjust the output shaft if the following components were replaced:

  • Transmission Housing
  • Clutch Housing
  • Output shaft for 1st to 4th gears or
  • Output shaft tapered roller bearing

Adjustment overview.

Requirements:

  • Remove any Sealant remaining on the sealing surfaces on the clutch and transmission housing.
  • Install the output shaft that is going to be measured.

 

  • Install the tapered roller bearing outer race in the transmission housing with a 1.70 mm shim. Support transmission housing directly beneath bearing mount using Slide Hammer - Press Plate -2050-.
  • Install the output shaft for 1st through 4th gears into the clutch housing.

Volswagen Tiguan. N35-0239

  • Install the transmission housing and tighten the bolts -A- and -B- diagonally.

  • Position the measuring tools on the clutch housing and secure them with a bolt -arrow-.
  • Set the dial gauge (3 mm range) with 1 mm preload to "0".
  • Loosen securing bolts for clutch housing/transmission housing in diagonal sequence until bolts clear transmission housing and output shaft.
  • Read measured value on dial indicator and note (example: 0.14 mm).

Volswagen Tiguan. N35-0240

Note

  • The measured value will not be displayed when loosening the bolts that connect the clutch housing to the transmission housing.
  • Install a 1.95 mm shim or, if necessary, a 2.20 mm shim in place of the 1.70 mm shim for measuring.
  • Allocate the correct shim. Refer to the Parts Catalog.

Determining the Shim

The required bearing tension is reached as follows:

The specified bearing pre-load is reached when determined measured value (0.14 mm) is subtracted from inserted adjustment shim (1.70 mm).

A constant figure of (0.20 mm) is added to the reading.

Example:

Inserted shim 1.70 mm
- measured value 0.14 mm
+ Preload (constant value) 0.20 mm
Shim thickness 1.76 mm
  • Select the correct shim thickness according to the table.
  • Remove the transmission housing and remove the tapered roller bearing outer race from the transmission housing.
  1. Counter Support, for example, Puller - Kukko Counterstay -22/2-
  2. Internal Puller 46 to 58 mm, for example, Puller - Kukko Internal - 46-56mm -Kukko 21/7-
  • Remove the inserted shim (1.70 mm) from the transmission housing.

Tolerance variations make it possible to find the exact shim thickness required.

  • Shim part number. Refer to the Parts Catalog.
  • Install the outer race/tapered roller bearing with the selected shim (in the example: 1.75 mm) Support transmission housing directly beneath bearing mount using Slide Hammer - Press Plate -2050-.

Checking Measurement

  • The selected adjusting shim is installed.
  • Position the measuring tools on the clutch housing and secure them with a bolt -arrow-.
  • Set the dial gauge (3 mm range) with 1 mm preload to "0".
  • Loosen securing bolts for clutch housing/transmission housing in diagonal sequence until bolts clear transmission housing and output shaft.
  • For correctly selected shim, the dial gauge must now display a value of 0.15 mm to 0.25 mm.
