  • Patent number: 10626659
    Abstract: An assembly for adjusting an adjustment element relative to a stationary portion of a vehicle, in particular a vehicle door relative to a vehicle body, comprises a drive motor for electromotively adjusting the adjustment element and a transmission element. In a coupling, first condition an electrically actuatable coupling device couples the drive motor with the transmission element, in order to exert an adjustment force for adjusting the adjustment element on the transmission element, and in a decoupling, second condition decouples the drive motor from the transmission element. An electrically actuatable locking device serves for locking the adjustment element with the stationary portion of the vehicle in a closed position. A control device controls the drive motor, the coupling device and the locking device.
