Title: MOTOR VEHICLE DOOR LOCK
Abstract:
The invention relates to a motor vehicle door lock, comprising a locking mechanism (2, 3), an actuating lever assembly (6a, 6b) acting on the locking mechanism (2, 3), and a latching element (14). The locking element (14) interacts with a spring (18) and interrupts the actuating lever assembly (8a, 6b) in the event of acceleration forces (F) of predetermined magnitude occurring (crash). Moreover the locking element (14) ensures that in normal operation the actuating lever assembly (6a, 6b) is closed for opening of the locking mechanism (2, 3). According to the invention the locking element (14) resiliently deforms the spring (16) in the event of a crash with continued interruption of the actuating lever assembly (6a, 6b). In normal operation the locking element (14) slides along the spring (16) in order to close the actuating lever assembly (6a, 6b).
