  • Patent number: 10093206
    Abstract: A head restraint (14) has a headrest (16) and at least one guide tube (18) that can be latched to a backrest structure of a motor vehicle seat for movable guidance of the headrest (16) in the direction of travel. An actuating rod (30) is mounted rotatably in the guide tube (18) and an unlocking slide (40) can be moved axially by rotating the actuating rod (30). In an actuating position, the unlocking slide (40) moves a latching element (58) into an unlatched position, and, in a rest position, the latching element (58) occupies a latched position. An actuating bar (24) is guided in the headrest (16) for rotating the actuating rod (30). The guide tube (18) is supported axially without tilting, and protectively accommodates a latching mechanism (59) that is easy to actuate from outside so that the head restraint (14) can be adjusted in a simple manner.

  • Patent number: 10088382
    Abstract: A method is provided for examining the leaktightness of a closed housing of an electrical component. This method includes flooding the housing with a gas mixture that contains a high proportion of an inert gas and a low residual proportion of a gas that can be detected by a measuring probe. During the flooding process, gas that is located inside the housing is forced out of the housing. The method proceeds by determining any leak in the housing by detecting gas escaping from the housing, installing the electrical component when the housing is proven to be leaktight, with the inert gas remaining in the housing.

  • Patent number: 10082096
    Abstract: A method for starting a motor vehicle engine includes measuring the profile of a rotational speed of an engine shaft of the motor vehicle engine. An estimated rotation speed of the engine shaft is determined that is expected to be present after one working cycle of the next cylinder to be fired. The estimated rotational speed is compared with a resonant rotational speed range of a vibration damper. Where the vibration damper is configured as a dual-mass flywheel and resonant vibrations occur in the vibration damper within the resonant rotational speed range. If the estimated rotational speed is within the resonant rotational speed range, at least one of introduction parameters for the introduction of a fluid to be introduced into the cylinder or an ignition time of the cylinder is changed so as to change the estimated rotational speed to be outside the resonant rotational speed range.
