Title: A METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DETERMINING SHIM THICKNESS
Abstract:
A method for determining a shim thickness is provided. The method comprises rotatably supporting a pinion axle by means of at least one bearing, applying a preload to said bearing by pressing a contact surface of a preload member against the bearing, arranging at least one measurement surface at a well defined axial distance from a radial groove of the pinion axle, and measuring the axial distance between the at least one measurement surface and a reference surface of the preload member, wherein the measured axial distance corresponds to a desired shim thickness.
