Hello .

I need a bit of information of a gearbox issue .
I've built several engines , and done all mechanical and body repairs to cars and vans I've owned .
But I've never worked on a gearbox .

I'm having a problem with my gearbox , at first I thought it was the CV joint gone against the gearbox as it started making the same noise as the one on the other side did a few years back .
Turns out there was a bit of play in it , but when I undid the bolts to swap it I found the output shaft and flange had a lot of play to them .
Clearly the diff bearing needs replacing .

But that thread is about dismantling and rebuilding a gearbox with all the adjustments that goes with it.
Now I can take off  the flange and remove the  side adjuster , I can have someone remove the old bearing in a press , and I can fit in the new bearing .
My question is , how far/tight do I refit the side adjuster ?
Is it just a case if marking the side adjuster and gearbox body before disassembly and refitting to the same position ?
Is it fine to tighten to a certain torque ?
Or do I need to drop the box and take it to a transmission specialist ?

Thanks in advance .
