English term or phrase: mod plate
"Remove the intermediate shaft seal from the mod plate.[...]
Install the intermediate shaft seal to the mod plate, ensuring the seal between the intermediate shaft seal and mod plate."

"Mod plate" als Abkürzung für "modification plate" habe ich gefunden, macht aber keinen Sinn, denn was hätte die an der Zwischenwelle verloren?!

Explanation:
mod plate = modular plate

AFAICU this is a piece (of modular design?) which serves as an interface between the steering column in the car's passenger compartment and the rest of the steering system, normally located outside of it. See the link below, namely fig.5.

I also have some vague memory of seeing 'mod plate' meaning a flat vertical piece with openings, serving to ensure precise in-line positioning of the front and rear parts of a combine harvester during its final assembly.

No idea for a German translation, sorry.
