  • Patent number: 10752098
    Abstract: A lifting guide mechanism for a sunroof device that can be reduced in weight, thickness, and cost is provided. A second rear guide pin (27) is provided behind and above a first rear guide pin (26) which can be received in a guide groove (34). A first upper wall (32) is formed with a rear opening part (36) to allow the first rear guide pin (26) to get in and out of the guide groove (34). A first rear lifting guide member (39) is provided on the first upper wall (32) so as to project upward at rear of the rear opening part (36) to guide the second rear guide pin (27) when a movement of a movable panel (11) is switched between sliding and tilting. This eliminates the need for a member for guiding the first rear guide pin (26) in the guide groove (34), and thus, the panel guide rail (14) may have a single-level structure.

  • Patent number: 10597283
    Abstract: An erroneous refueling prevention device restricts or allows insertion of a refueling gun into a refueling passage depending on an outer diameter of the refueling gun. The device includes a flap configured to open or close the refueling passage by a turn of the flap about a first turn pivot; and a switch configured to be unlocked from the flap by a turn of the flap to a half-opened state, and to turn about a second turn pivot. The switch includes a protrusion detector configured to, in response to the turn, project to a position where the protrusion detector faces the refueling passage. The switch restricts or allows a turn of the flap from the half-opened state to a fully-opened state, depending on a turn amount of the switch to be determined by a contact relationship between the protrusion detector and the refueling gun.
