German term or phrase: gekapselte Ausgleich
This term appears in a service manual for a bus. This particular section is dealing with the suspension.

Ab der Achsnummer M133838 kommen Mitteltriebe mit gekapseltem Ausgleich zum Einsatz.
Als Ersatzteil werden nur noch gekapselte Mitteltriebe ausgeliefert.
Vor dem Einbau des Mitteltriebes mit gekapseltem Ausgleich in die Achsbrücke, müssen 0,5 l Öl in den Ausgleich eingefüllt werden, da sonst die Zahnräder des Ausgleiches nicht geschmiert werden und es zur Zerstörung des gesammten Mitteltriebes kommt.

Attempted transation/thoughts so far:
This is some kind of compensation system which is fully enclosed. As yet, I'm not very sure what the compensation is for - possibly to adjust the height of the axle according to road conditions ??

hence initial translation "encapsulated compensation (system)"

Many thanks for your help in advance
