Title: (EN) DRIVE UNIT OF A MOVABLE VEHICLE COMPONENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

The invention relates to a drive unit (15) of a movable vehicle component (1,3), particularly a soft top compartment cover of a convertible, which is connected to a locking device (21) and a bearing mechanism (6) of the movable component (3). In order to improve the moving process, the drive unit is joined to the locking device (21) via a gear unit (16, 20; 16′, 20′). Preferably, the gear unit increases the ratio at which the drive unit associated with the locking device travels especially by 3 to 5 while reducing the force transmission ratio accordingly.
