Title: DEVICE FOR FASTENING A VEHICLE WINDOW AND ESTABLISHING ELECTRICAL CONTACT THEREWITH
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device (1) which serves for fastening a vehicle window (2) and for establishing electrical contact therewith, at least one electrical functional element (4) being integrated in said vehicle window. For this purpose, the device (1) comprises a window adapter (5), which is designed for fixing on the vehicle window (2). The device (1) also comprises a window holder (8), which is designed for coupling the window adapter (5) to a vehicle body. The device (1) further comprises a window-fitted connector (7), which, in the intended installation state, establishes electrical contact with the functional element (4) of the vehicle window (2), and a window-fitted connector shoe (6) for mounting the window-fitted connector (7) on the vehicle window (2). The device (1) additionally comprises a mating connector (10), which is intended to be coupled to the window-fitted connector (7) in order to establish electrical contact between the functional element (4) and a control unit. The window adapter (5) and the window-fitted connector shoe (6) and also the window holder (8) and a connector holder (9), which bears the mating connector (10), are coupled kinematically here such that, when the vehicle window (2) is installed by means of the window adapter (5) on the window holder (8), the window-fitted connector (7) is connected to the mating connector (10). Moreover, the window-fitted connector shoe (6) or the connector holder (9) has arranged on it a compliant stop element (30), which is intended to apply, during installation, a coupling force for coupling the window-fitted connector (7) as intended to the mating connector (10), wherein the window-fitted connector (7) and mating connector (10), in the intended installation state, are mounted with play on the window-fitted connector shoe (6) or the connector holder (9).
