  • Patent number: 5927382
    Abstract: An evaporator for cooling air is disposed within resinous cases obliquely relative to a vehicle front-rear direction. The evaporator rotates to a vehicle front side when a shock is applied to the cases from a vehicle rear side at a time of a vehicle collision. Therefore, even if a passenger in a passenger compartment collides with the cases at the vehicle collision, the evaporator rotates toward the vehicle front side to decrease the shock to the passenger's body, thereby protecting the passenger.
