A sensor device is provided for detecting a shifting position of a vehicle transmission. The vehicle transmission includes a transmission chamber, in which transmission elements are arranged. The sensor device includes a bar element, which extends from the transmission chamber into a secondary chamber sealed off from the transmission chamber and is arranged such that the bar element can be moved in dependence on the shifting position. The bar element has an interface arranged in the transmission chamber for coupling the bar element to a transmission element positioned in dependence on the shifting position and an accommodating segment arranged in the secondary chamber. The sensor device also has a transducer element, which is attached to the accommodating segment of the bar element. The sensor device also has a detecting device for detecting a position of the transducer element depending on the shifting position or a motion of the transducer element depending on a change in the shifting position.

A compressed air system for a motor vehicle with an air supply system includes an electric drive motor, which can be controlled for variable speed, an air compressor coupled to be driven by the electric drive motor, an electric power supply for supplying electric power to the electric drive motor, at least one air reservoir connected with the air compressor to receive air from the air compressor, an air utilization system connected to the air reservoir to receive air from the air reservoir, and a controller to control the speed of the electric drive motor. The controller controls the electric drive motor to determine its speed depending upon at least one of the following signals: a signal representing the activation status of an accelerator pedal of the vehicle, a signal representing the speed of the vehicle, a signal representing the temperature of the power supply, a signal representing the temperature of the electric drive motor, a signal representing the wetness level of the air compressed by the air compressor, a signal representing the load of the air compressor, a signal representing the running time of the air compressor, or a signal representing the status of the electric power supply.

A disc brake for a commercial vehicle, includes a brake caliper having a receiving space for functional elements, a mounting and functional opening of the receiving space being closed by a closure plate through which at least one adjusting spindle extends. The closure plate is fastened to the brake caliper so that it can be non-destructively detached. The closure plate, in a first sub-region, is screwed to the brake caliper and, in a second sub-region, is interlockingly held on the brake caliper.

A disk brake includes a brake caliper and two brake pads, which can be pressed onto a brake disk on both sides and which each have a pad carrier plate and a friction pad fastened thereto. A pad retaining clip, which is retained on the brake caliper and which spans an installation opening, is supported on the brake pads. The pad retaining clip is fastened to a form closure element of at least one brake pad so as to be secured against movement.
