Title
(EN) SIMPLY ARTICULATED FUEL FLAP AND METHOD OF FITTING IT TO A VEHICLE
(FR) TRAPPE A CARBURANT A ARTICULATION SIMPLE ET SON PROCEDE DE MONTAGE SUR UN VEHICULE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a simply articulated fuel flap (1) intended to be fixed to the body shell of a vehicle, said fuel flap (1) comprising a flap bowl (3), a flap panel (9) and a hinge (13) articulating the flap panel (9) to the flap bowl (3), characterized in that said fuel flap (1) comprises a plate fitting (23) fixed to the flap bowl (3) and to which the hinge (13) is attached, the plate fitting (23) comprising means of attachment to the flap bowl (3), means of attachment to the hinge (13) and means of indexing with respect to the body shell of the vehicle. A method of fitting a fuel flap (1) is also proposed, in which method use is made of a mounting jig indexed geometrically to the side of the body shell (5) in order to position the plate fitting (23) on the flap bowl (3) before the flap panel (9) is attached to the plate fitting (23).
(FR)
L'invention concerne une trappe à carburant (1) à articulation simple destinée à être fixée sur la caisse d'un véhicule, ladite trappe à carburant (1) comportant un bol de trappe (3), un panneau de trappe (9) et une charnière (13) d'articulation du panneau de trappe (9) sur le bol de trappe (3), caractérisée en ce que ladite trappe à carburant (1) comprend une plaquette de ferrage (23) fixée sur le bol de trappe (3) et sur laquelle est fixée la charnière (13), la plaquette de ferrage (23) comportant des moyens de fixation sur le bol de trappe (3), des moyens de fixation sur la charnière (13) et des moyens d'indexation par rapport à la caisse de véhicule. Il est également proposé un procédé de montage d'une trappe à carburant (1) dans lequel on utilise un gabarit de montage indexé géométriquement au côté de caisse (5)pour positionner la plaquette de ferrage (23) sur le bol de trappe (3)avant la fixation du panneau de trappe (9)sur la plaquette de ferrage (23).
