Title: JOINT AND/OR BEARING ARRANGEMENT
Abstract:
A joint and/or bearing arrangement (1) comprises a pivot pin (2) the top section (3) of which is mobile relative to a receiving shell (4) or housing unit (5), said pivot pin (2), across at least a part of its extension, being surrounded by a peripheral sealing collar (7) that rests indirectly or directly on the pivot pin (2) in a sealing manner with its end axially facing away from the top section (3) and has a corresponding radially inner retainer ring (6). The invention is characterized in that the joint and/or bearing arrangement is designed in such a manner that the sealing collar (7), in the region where it rests on the pivot pin (2), is associated with a radially outer second ring (8) having an axial component of extension in a manner approximately parallel to the first retainer ring (6), said second ring being connected to the first retainer ring (6) via a radial connector (9) to give a receiving unit (10), having a U-shaped cross-section, for an axial end section (11) of the sealing bellows (7).
