Title
(EN) MODIFIED DOOR OPENING OF A MOTORIZED VEHICLE FOR ACCOMMODATING A RAMP SYSTEM AND METHOD THEREOF
(FR) OUVERTURE DE PORTE DE VÉHICULE À MOTEUR MODIFIÉE POUR L'ADAPTER À UN SYSTÈME DE RAMPE, ET PROCÉDÉ CORRESPONDANT
Abstract
(EN) A method of increasing a door opening width of a crossover vehicle to accommodate a wheelchair ramp or lift assembly. The method includes positioning a template on a B pillar and a template on a C pillar and marking cut lines on the pillars. The method includes cutting along the cut lines with a cutting tool to remove portions of the B pillar and the C pillar. A B pillar cover assembly is assembled and a reinforcement plate is coupled to a remaining portion of the C pillar. An adhesive is applied to the B pillar cover assembly and to a C pillar cap. A modified B pillar is produced by coupling the B pillar cover assembly to a remaining portion of the B pillar, and a modified C pillar is produced by coupling the C pillar cap to the reinforcement plate and the remaining portion of the C pillar.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un procédé d'élargissement de l'ouverture de porte d'un crossover afin de l'adapter à une rampe pour fauteuil roulant ou à un ensemble élévateur. Le procédé comprend le positionnement d'un gabarit sur un montant B et le positionnement d'un gabarit sur un montant C, puis le marquage de lignes de découpe sur les montants. Le procédé inclut la découpe le long des lignes de découpe à l'aide d'un outil de découpe pour ôter des parties du montant B et du montant C. Un ensemble de recouvrement de montant B est assemblé, et une plaque de renfort est accouplée à une partie restante du montant C. Un adhésif est appliqué sur l'ensemble de recouvrement de montant B et sur un cache de montant C. Un montant B modifié est fabriqué par accouplement de l'ensemble de recouvrement de montant B à une partie restante du montant B, et un montant C modifié est fabriqué par accouplement du cache de montant C à la plaque de renfort et à la partie restante du montant C.
