Claims

1. An open roof system for a vehicle having an opening in its fixed roof, comprising:
a stationary part configured to be fixed to the roof,
at least first and second movable elements, which are each movable between a retracted position and a deployed position,
a motor configured to drive the movable elements at least partly between the retracted and deployed positions,
at least first and second drive cable assemblies configured to transfer torque of the motor to said movable elements, wherein the stationary part comprises at least first and second guiding channels and guides for respectively guiding the drive cable assemblies and the movable elements, wherein the first and second drive cable assemblies comprise a flexible first part having first and second end portions, said flexible first part being driven by the motor such that said first end portion of said flexible first part is on one side of the motor and the second end portion is on the other side of the motor and said second end portion is guided in the first guiding channel, wherein each of the first and second drive cable assemblies further comprises an elongated second part guided in the second guiding channel, wherein at least a part of the second guiding channel extends side-by-side to the first guiding channel, and wherein, during at least part of the operation, said elongated second part is driven by and is moved substantially in the same direction as the second end portion of the first part of the cable assembly at a position where the first and second guiding channels extend side-by-side, and wherein said flexible first parts and the second elongated parts of the first and second drive cable assemblies together drive said at least first and second movable elements.
2. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the elongated second part of the drive cable assembly is separate from the first part.
3. The open roof system according to claim 2, wherein the first and second parts are connected by a separate connecting part.
4. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the elongated second part of the drive cable assembly is an extension of the flexible first part.
5. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the second part is continuously immovably connected to the flexible first part.
6. The open roof system according to claim 2, wherein the second part is temporarily connected to the flexible first part by a temporary connecting part, such that during a movement between two positions of the first movable element, the second elongated part is disconnected from the flexible first part, such that the second moveable element is substantially stationary.
7. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the elongated second part is a flexible part having the same properties as the flexible first part.
8. The open roof system according to claim 3, wherein the first and second guiding channels have lateral openings extending along the length of the guiding channels, wherein the lateral openings face each other, and wherein the connecting part projects through said openings.
9. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the first and second guiding channels have lateral openings extending along the length of the guiding channels, wherein the lateral openings face each other, and wherein the first part and second part are made of one piece with a portion projecting through said openings.
10. The open roof system according to claim 6, wherein the first and second guiding channels have lateral openings extending along the length of the guiding channels, wherein the lateral openings face each other, and wherein a part of the temporary connection projects through said openings.
11. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the at least first and second movable elements are windable sunscreens or stackable sunscreens.
12. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the at least first and second movable elements comprise a closure assembly configured to close the opening in the fixed roof of the panel.
13. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the at least first and second movable elements are a closure element configured to close an opening in the fixed roof and a slide configured to raise a wind deflector to deflect the wind when the closure element is in an open position.
14. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the elongated second part is connected to a mechanism for the movement of the first or second movable element.
15. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the motor is positioned substantially in between the first and the second movable elements.
16. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the first part of the drive cable assembly runs substantially from one lateral guide to the opposite lateral guide.
17. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the first and second drive cable assemblies each have a flexible first part and at least one elongated second part.
18. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the first end portion of the flexible first part of the first drive cable assembly is connected to one of the first and second movable parts, and wherein the second end portion of the flexible first part is connected, at least during part of the operation, to the elongated second part which is connected to one of the first and second movable parts.
19. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the flexible first part and the second part of each of the first and second drive cable assembly is connected to one of the movable elements.
20. The open roof system according to claim 19, wherein the flexible first parts of the first and second drive cable assemblies are connected to the first movable element and the elongated second parts of the first and second drive cable assemblies are connected to the second movable elements.
21. The open roof system according to claim 17, wherein the flexible first part of the first drive cable assembly and the elongated second part of the second drive cable assembly is connected to one of the movable elements.
22. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the flexible first part of the first drive cable assembly is connected, during at least a part of the operation, to at least two elongated second parts.
23. The open roof system according to claim 22, wherein the at least two elongated second parts are connected to the end of the first end portion of the flexible first part.
24. The open roof system according to claim 1, wherein the first end portion of the flexible first part of the first drive cable assembly is connected to one of the first and second movable parts, and wherein the first end portion of the flexible first part is connected, at least during part of the operation, to the elongated second part which is connected to one of the first and second movable parts.
25. An open roof system for a vehicle having an opening in its fixed roof, comprising:
a stationary part configured to be fixed to the roof,
at least first and second movable elements, which are each movable between a retracted position and a deployed position,
a motor configured to drive the movable elements at least partly between the retracted and deployed positions,
at least two drive cable assemblies configured to transfer torque of the motor to said movable elements, wherein the stationary part comprises at least first and second guiding channels and laterally positioned guides for respectively guiding the drive cable assemblies and the movable elements, whereby the drive cable assemblies comprise a flexible first part having first and second ends, said first part being driven by the motor, and wherein said first end of said flexible first part is connected to the first movable element, in a first direction, and said second end is guided in a first guiding channel in one of the lateral guides, said second end oriented in a direction substantially parallel to the first end towards said first movable element, and wherein the drive cable assembly further comprises an elongated second part, guided in a second guiding channel in a second direction towards said second movable element and connected thereto, in that the second guiding channel is oriented substantially parallel to the first guiding channel in said one of the lateral guides, and in that, during at least part of the operation, said elongated second part moves substantially in the same direction as the second end of the first part of the cable assembly.
