Title: CAMERA WITH A HOUSING, A CIRCUIT BOARD AND A HOOD-LIKE, RESILIENT RETAINING ELEMENT, MOTOR VEHICLE AND METHOD FOR ASSEMBLING A CAMERA
Abstract:
The invention relates to a camera (2) for a motor vehicle (1), including a housing (8) and a circuit board (9) and a retaining element (12), by which the circuit board (9) is retained in the housing (8), wherein the retaining element (12) has a first retaining flap (16) resilient in the direction perpendicular to a longitudinal axis (15) of the housing (8) and a second retaining flap (17) resilient in the direction perpendicular to the longitudinal axis (15), which engage with opposing border sides (20, 21) of the first circuit board (9), wherein the first retaining flap (16) is pressed to a first border side (20) of the first circuit board (9) by an inner side (28) of a first sidewall (24) of the housing (8) in perpendicular direction to the longitudinal axis (15) in the assembled final state of the camera (2), and the second retaining flap (17) is pressed to a second border side (21) of the first circuit board (9) by an inner side (29) of a second sidewall (25) of the housing (8) in perpendicular direction to the longitudinal axis (15) in the assembled final state of the camera (2).
