Title: RETAINING SPRING FOR AN ARTICULATED CONNECTION OF A WIPER BLADE TO A WIPER ARM OF A VEHICLE AND A CORRESPONDING WIPER DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a retaining spring (10) for an articulated connection of a wiper blade (11) to a wiper arm (12) of a vehicle. Said retaining spring (10) has a first connecting means (13) for achieving a first connection to a retaining element (14) of the wiper blade (11) and a second connecting means (15) for achieving a second connection to a support element (16) of the wiper arm (12). The invention is characterised in that the articulated connection can be produced with the retaining spring (10) in its operating position, using the first and second connecting means (13, 15), by being assembled in a direction (26) which is substantially perpendicular to a working plane of the wiper blade (11).
