Title: INTERFACE FOR MOUNTING A STEERING COLUMN AND ASSOCIATED MOUNTING METHOD
Abstract:
Proposed is a column (2) and column support (3) assembly (1) configured to be assembled with a crossmember (4) and comprising a guideway device (5) and a retaining device (6). The column comprises a body (19) and a centring end (18). The assembly comprises: – a suspension device (25) configured for suspending the column (2) from a guideway (8) of the guideway device, – an opening (9) on the retaining device (6), configured so that a portion of the centring end (18) of the column (2) can be inserted therein, the opening being limited on a first side by a bearing edge. The retaining device (6) comprises, on a second side of the opening (9) diametrically opposite the first side, a stop rim extending forward of the opening (9) in the direction of the guideway (8), so as to form an end stop for the centring end (18) when the inclination of the column (2) is being varied.
