  • Patent number: 6667449
    Abstract: A switch hinge is described having a first hinge wing, which accommodates a switch operable by a lever, having a second hinge wing and having a shaft which, in the operative position, is non-rotatably connected with the second hinge wing. The shaft, on its circumference, has a switch groove which extends in the direction of the shaft axis and into which an operating pin connected with the lever dips in a predetermined swivelling position between the two hinge wings. In a preassembled condition, in which the operating pin rests in the switch groove, the shaft is secured by a lock against rotation with respect to the first hinge wing, and the second hinge wing is freely swivellably with respect to the shaft. A screw screwed into the face-side end of the first hinge wing axially displaces the shaft by a predetermined extent out of the preassembled position into the operative position.

  • Patent number: 6641168
    Abstract: A cross member as part of a motor-vehicle floor assembly is provided which, on both sides, comprises an attachment region for the screwing on of a rear axle unit, and a spring-receiving region which is adjacent to the attachment region and is intended for the fixing in place of a helical spring. In order to be able to absorb in a specific manner the compression and bending stresses introduced in the attachment and spring-receiving region, the cross member is provided with a stiffening structure of additional metal plates, the stiffening structure being used to obtain a local increase in the stiffening and strength of these regions. The stiffening structure is formed by extruded and bent steel plates which are nested one into another like boxes and are connected to one another and to the base and side walls of the cross member by spot welding. This box structure enables the screw-on intersecting point to be adjusted with respect to the rear axle in the body shell in the X- and Y-directions.
