  • Patent number: 8356856
    Abstract: A front spoiler of a motor vehicle is held on the front end part of the vehicle by fastening elements. To reinforce the front spoiler in the central region, reinforcing ribs are provided, which extend into inward and outward formations on the front end part. The reinforcing ribs are preferably vertically aligned plate-shaped structures that extend in the longitudinal direction. To ensure a necessary dimensional stability of the front spoiler during driving, the reinforcing ribs can be supported on the front end part, and the front spoiler itself can be supported on the reinforcing ribs.

  • Publication number: 20120295758
    Abstract: A method is provided for operating a hybrid drive train of a hybrid vehicle. The drive train has an internal combustion engine, a first electric machine, a transmission with an input shaft, a separating element and a first axle. The internal combustion engine can be connected to the first electric machine via the separating element. When the separating element is opened and the internal combustion engine is stationary, a difference in rotational speed occurs at the separating element between the internal combustion engine and the rotating first electric machine. The separating element is opened below and up to a maximum permissible difference in rotational speed at the separating element to drive the hybrid vehicle purely electrically by the first electric machine or to brake the vehicle or to coast. Above the maximum permissible difference in rotational speed the separating element and the first electric machine are separated from one another.

  • Patent number: 7992905
    Abstract: A forward structure of a motor vehicle, particularly of a passenger car, includes a bumper cross member and an energy absorption element, particularly a foam-type impact absorbing element, disposed in front of the bumper cross member in the driving direction. A plurality of recesses are shaped into the forward-side outer contour of the energy absorption element. To ensure optimal energy reduction while the mounting space is reduced, and thereby a best-possible protective function with respect to a leg impact, at least several of the recesses completely penetrate the energy absorption element along its entire depth, whereby a plurality of breakthroughs are arranged in the energy absorption element.

  • Patent number: 7258383
    Abstract: A vehicle body includes a first structural component and a second structural component that form the outer shell of the body. The structural components are joined in the area of equidirectional flanges, are locally detachably connected to each other, and delimit a joint in a common connecting area towards the vehicle exterior. A positioning device, which fixes two adjoining structural parts that form the outer shell of the body in the X and Y directions with respect to each other, is provided between the two adjoining structural components in order to ensure that a flush transition on the outer shell and an even course of the joint between the two structural components is provided in inaccessible areas between two adjoining structural components.

  • Patent number: 7014254
    Abstract: A fastening device is provided for a component which is installed in a depression in an automotive body part, insertable into the depression from the outside via an inclined assembly position, and lockable in an operating position in the depression by a pivoting movement. In the operating position, a mounting part integrally molded on a first edge area of the component is in operative connection with a first side wall section of the depression, and, on an opposite second edge area of the component, an elastic catch part is provided, cooperating with a second side wall section of the depression. The depression also has two wall sections arranged with distance between them. To create the fastening device, with which the design is simplified and which also ensures rapid and simple installation and removal, a device is inserted between the depression and the adjacent component in the area of the two wall sections.

  • Patent number: 6997496
    Abstract: A releasable connection is provided between two adjoining components, particularly body shell parts of a vehicle body. A releasable connection ensuring an exact positioning of the two parts as well as a fast and simple mounting is provided. The releasable connection includes at least one base plate which is held in position on a first body shell component and has at least one projecting pin. A receiving device is fastened to an opposite second body shell component and has a rotatable slotted sleeve part. An end-side profiled head section of the at least one pin is guidable through openings of the second component, of the receiving device and of the sleeve part. As a result of radial rotation of the sleeve part about an angle ?, a fastening of the first and second body shell components with respect to one another takes place.
