  • Publication number: 20220144343
    Abstract: A frame device for a vehicle, including a subframe which can be attached to a structure of the vehicle and which has two side members spaced apart from one another in the transverse direction of the subframe and at least one cross member via which the side members are interconnected. The frame device also includes at least one support element, which is formed separately from the subframe and has at least one attachment element by which at least one component of the vehicle can be attached to the support element, and a steering gear which is formed separately from the subframe and separately from the support element for a steering system of the vehicle. Both the steering gear and the support element are attached to the subframe by one and the same fastening element.

  • Publication number: 20210101636
    Abstract: A steering shaft for a steering system of a motor vehicle, having at least two steering shaft elements, via which a steering wheel is mechanically connectable to a steering gear of the steering system, and having at least one joint, via which the steering shaft elements are connected to one another in a torque-transmitting manner and so they are pivotable relative to one another around the pivot axis. At least one securing element, which secures the steering shaft elements relative to one another against pivot movements extending around the pivot axis both in a first pivot direction and also in a second pivot direction opposite to the first pivot direction and releases the steering shaft elements for a pivot movement relative to one another taking place around the pivot axis in at least one of the pivot directions.

  • Patent number: 10144258
    Abstract: A wheel suspension for a vehicle axle, in particular a front axle, of a two-track vehicle, having a wheel carrier carrying a vehicle wheel, this carrier being linked via a link assembly to a vehicle body, which link assembly has at least two links that are linked to the wheel carrier at bearing points on the side of the wheel carrier and to the vehicle body at bearing points on the body side. In the event of a head-on collision, in particular with a small lateral overlap, the vehicle wheel can be shifted rearwards in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, and specifically with a pivoting movement of the crash-facing first link and with deformation of the crash-remote second link.

  • Patent number: 9545827
    Abstract: A wheel suspension for a rear wheel of a two-track motor vehicle, includes a five-link assembly which has five individual links which are coupled to the vehicle body via body-side bearings and to the wheel carrier of the rear wheel via wheel-carrier-side bearings, which five-link assembly, as viewed in the direction of travel, has a front pair of links and a rear pair of links, wherein the front pair of links has a lower, front link, with respect to the axis of rotation of the wheel, and an upper, front link, and the rear pair of links has a lower, rear link, in particular track rod, and an upper, rear link. A lower spring link, on which a spring arrangement having a vibration damper and a supporting spring is supported, is arranged in the direction of travel between the front and rear pairs of links. The front pair of links with respect to the spring link is of softer design in the transverse direction of the vehicle than the rear pair of links.

  • Patent number: 9469174
    Abstract: The invention relates to a wheel suspension for a motor vehicle, said wheel suspension having a multi-link assembly (21) of links that are hinged to the vehicle body, in particular to a subframe (1) of the vehicle body, and to a hub carrier (23), and having a rotary actuator (27) for active chassis control, said rotary actuator having a motor-gear unit (29) with which torques can be transmitted, via at least one torsion bar (31), as adjusting forces to said multi-link assembly (21). According to the invention, at least one of the links (14, 16) of the multi-link assembly (21) limits, in the longitudinal direction (x) of the vehicle towards the front or towards the back, a free space (39) in which said motor-gear unit (29) of the rotary actuator (27) is at least partially arranged.

  • Patent number: 9446653
    Abstract: An adjustable wheel suspension for the wheels of an axle of a motor vehicle is disclosed, wherein each wheel is guided by means of wheel guide elements and each wheel is operatively connected to an adjustable torsion bar, the torsion bars associated with the respective wheels being partially aligned with each other and each torsion bar being associated with an adjusting device that can be regulated and/or controlled by a controller for adjustment and each torsion bar being mounted on an auxiliary frame via its adjusting device and the controller. The adjusting devices and the adjusting mechanism are mounted in a common housing, which can be mounted on the auxiliary frame as an integral structural component.

  • Patent number: 9399378
    Abstract: A wheel suspension for the rear axle of a vehicle includes a wheel carrier that is steerable in a pivoting range for mounting a wheel, and a plurality of control arms for articulating the wheel carrier to the body of the vehicle, and further a damping device for damping a movement of the wheel carrier relative to the vehicle body. The damping device is connected to the wheel carrier by way of a wheel carrier connection, wherein the wheel carrier connection is arranged in an attachment area of the wheel space of the wheel defined by the pivoting range of the wheel carrier, which, of all areas of the wheel space facing the vehicle body, has the greatest direct distance to the vehicle body.
