Title: INSERT FOR A BALL JOINT IN A MOTOR VEHICLE, BALL JOINT OR LINK HAVING AN INSERT OF THIS TYPE, AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING AN INSERT OF THIS TYPE, A BALL JOINT OF THIS TYPE OR A LINK OF THIS TYPE
Abstract:
The invention relates to an insert (1) for a ball joint in a motor vehicle having a first part structure (6) for making contact with a joint ball (2) which is mounted at least partially slidingly, wherein the first part structure can be connected to a joint shell and/or a joint housing by means of overmoulding. In order to improve the positionability and/or handleability of the insert, in particular in order to realize an increase in the pulling-out force in addition to a pole surface cover, the insert is characterized in that a cage-like configuration for surrounding the joint ball is realized by means of an open part structure (20).
