Claims

1. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) for an internal combustion engine, comprising a stator (5) which can be connected fixedly to a crankshaft so as to rotate with it, a rotor which is mounted in the stator (5) such that it can be rotated about a rotational axis, a sealing cover (7, 53) for minimizing leakage, and a spring element (9, 59) for positioning the rotor with respect to the stator (5), characterized in that the spring element (9, 59) is held on the sealing cover (7, 53) in the axial direction via a spring clip (3, 41).
  2. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to Claim 1, characterized in that the spring clip (3, 41) is oriented radially on the sealing cover (7, 53) and has axially extending limbs (13, 45) for fastening.
  3. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to Claim 1 or 2, characterized in that the sealing cover (7, 53) is configured with a number of recesses (15, 57) for fastening the spring clip (3, 41).
  4. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to Claim 2 or 3, characterized in that the limbs (13, 45) of the spring clip (3, 41) are latched in the or each recess (15, 57) of the sealing cover (7, 53).
  5. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to Claim 2 or 3, characterized in that- the limbs (13, 45) of the spring clip (3, 41) are braced in the or each recess (15, 57) of the sealing cover (7, 53).
  6. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the spring element (9, 59) is configured as a helical spring, the windings (17) of which are engaged around at least partially by the spring clip (3, 41).
  7. Camshaft adjuster (1, 51) according to one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the spring element (9, 59) is additionally held radially on the sealing cover (7, 53) by means of a spring holder (25).
