Title
(EN) CONNECTION DEVICE FOR STEERING COLUMN AND CROSSBEAM
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONNEXION POUR COLONNE DE DIRECTION ET TRAVERSE
Abstract
(EN)
A connection device (8) for connection of a steering wheel column (4) and a crossbeam (2) in a motor vehicle. The crossbeam (2) is releasably arranged in said connection to allow movement backwards relative the steering wheel column (4) when said crossbeam (2) being moved in a direction towards the passenger compartment (7) due to deformation of the vehicle structure in an impact. The present invention aims at reducing the risk for injuries to the occupants involved in frontal, small overlap and oblique impacts .
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de connexion (8) permettant la connexion d'une colonne de direction (4) et d'une traverse (2) dans un véhicule automobile. La traverse (2) est arrangée de manière libérable dans ladite connexion pour permettre le mouvement arrière par rapport à la colonne de direction (4) quand ladite traverse (2) est déplacée dans une direction allant vers l'habitacle (7) en raison de la déformation de la structure du véhicule en cas de choc. La présente invention vise à réduire le risque de blessures des occupants en cas de choc frontal, de faible recouvrement et oblique.
