Description

  • The present invention relates to an adjustable vehicle roof for a convertible vehicle, comprising a roof cap, at least one roof part, a rear window frame, as well as a top cover, the roof part and the rear window frame, roof top cover, wherein the vehicle roof, between a closed position and an open position is made movable ,
  • Adjustable vehicle roofs for convertible vehicles are known in a variety of embodiments and usually close along the vehicle roof to the rear area projecting roof opening. Here, a distinction is made between so-called retractable hardtop vehicle roofs (retractable fixed roof) and soft top vehicle roofs. In hardtop vehicle roofs, the roof opening is closed by means of a number of flat running, juxtaposed fixed roof elements. The roof elements are adjustably connected via a joint kinematics on the body of the motor vehicle and are stored in a storage space in the rear area.
  • From the DE 196 42 152 A1 Such a retractable hardtop vehicle roof is known. In the closed position of the roof, the roof parts, which comprise a front, a middle and a rear roof part, as viewed in the vehicle longitudinal direction, adjoin one another immediately one behind the other and are stacked in the opening position to form a stacked roof part package. Here, the middle roof part is below the rear roof part and the front roof part under the middle roof part. In this superimposition of the three roof sections, the roof section package is stored in a rear-side storage compartment in a space-saving packing position so that the opening of the storage compartment is covered in the rear region of at least a portion of the top of the rear roof section.
  • The design of a soft top vehicle roof comprises a roof made of a flexible material which is held on a hood frame and supported by this. The top linkage has a variety of links, bowing and ironing on. In the closed position, the top cloth carried by the hood frame spans the vehicle interior. Such a folding top is for example from the EP 0 749 859 A1 known.
  • A combination of a hardtop vehicle roof and a soft top is from the DE 10 2006 042 258 A1 known. The roof sections comprise in this embodiment, two designed as a rigid roof parts Flächspriegel, the second surface bow, in the direction of travel directly in front of the rear window frame roof section, under the rear window frame and designed as Integraldachrahmen foremost roof section and the first surface bow - seen in the direction of travel - the foremost roof sections, placed over the rear window frame. A cover formed as a coating is connected via an elastic drawstring with the first surface arch. During the opening movement of the vehicle roof, there is a lifting of the coating of those roof sections to which it is not connected. The elastic drawstring causes the opening of the soft top fixation of the coating on the corresponding roof section, whereby a predefined folding movement of the coating is enforced and thus this folds at each opening movement in the same way.
  • However, the aforementioned vehicle roofs, which have a fabric top or a cover, however, have the disadvantage that when driving with the cabriolet vehicle at high speed with closed vehicle roof to at least partial lifting of the substance - the so-called Balooningeffekt - comes.
  • Object of the present invention is therefore to develop the aforementioned adjustable vehicle roof with flat roof sections and top cloth such that in the open position allows a particularly space-saving storage position for the roof sections and in the closed position of the aforementioned Ballooningeffekt is avoided.
  • This object is achieved by the features specified in claim 1.
  • By the feature combination specified in claim 1, it is possible that a fixed connection of the top cloth on at least a portion of the flat roof sections is possible. By such a fixed connection of the top cloth, at least in partial areas of the flat roof sections of the aforementioned adverse Balooningeffekt is reduced. The above-described fixed connection of the convertible top cover can be realized, since during the transfer of the roof sections from the closed position to the open position, the roof sections are moved by roof kinematics such that they are in the storage position in an overhead position. In the closed position, the roof sections span the vehicle interior and have a planar inner side directed toward the vehicle interior and an opposite, flat outer side facing the outer side of the vehicle. In the above-mentioned overhead position, the roof sections are so in the storage compartment of the rear of the Motor vehicle stored that the inside is directed upwards or to the outside. This corresponds approximately to a rotation of the roof sections by 180 degrees. However, this can vary depending on the installation space situation and the given vehicle geometry as well as the design of the body.
  • According to the invention, the adjustable vehicle roof is designed so that the at least one roof part is brought into an overhead position when the roof part is guided when opening the adjustable vehicle roof in the top storage space. The required kinematics is simple and allows, since the roof cap and the roof part are stacked one above the other stored on the rear window frame, a particularly space-saving storage of the aforementioned roof sections.
  • The roof sections of the adjustable vehicle roof comprise a roof cap and at least one further flat roof part. As a roof cap of the roof section is referred to, comprising means for connecting the adjustable roof of the vehicle with a windshield frame. The roof cap is located as seen in the direction of travel first roof section in the area of the A-pillar on the windshield frame and has as already described closure elements. The at least one roof part and the roof cap are preferably designed as surface mirrors. The definition of the roof part or surface bow is that the flat arch in relation to the spanning top fabric erstecken over a much larger area of the roof than the possibly existing intermediate areas or gaps that are spanned only with the top fabric. Such surface mirrors are for example in the DE 10 2006 042 258 A1 described. The final, seen in the direction of travel rearmost element of the adjustable vehicle roof preferably forms a rear window frame. In the rear window frame, a rear window is arranged in a preferred embodiment.
  • In a displacement of the motor vehicle roof from the closed position to the open position, in a preferred embodiment, the roof cap and the at least one roof part are pivoted in the direction of travel to the rear. When reaching a certain position, the roof cap and the roof part are moved backwards in the direction of a storage compartment in the rear area. The rear window frame, held by the convertible top cover and a rear window frame, is placed down into the storage compartment. This means that the convertible top cover influences the position of the rear window frame. The rear window frame is made with its outwardly directed side. placed outside in the storage compartment. When the rear window frame is stored in the top storage compartment, the roof part and the roof cap are stored layered in an overhead position on the rear window frame. The top cloth is stored lying in a conventional conventional folding a rollover roof between the roof sections.
  • In an alternative storage concept, the roof cap is placed with the outside facing up. The roof cap can be provided here as a final element instead of a lid for closing the storage space. This has the advantage that the height of the stored package of roof sections significantly lower. The aforementioned cover can also serve as parcel shelf and is primarily intended to improve the aesthetics, and prevent the view of the stored roof sections, top cloth and kinematics components. In the alternative storage concept, the top cloth in the direction of travel to the rear facing area of the roof cap is connected to this. Since the roof cap forms the closing element of the storage space in the opening position of the adjustable motor vehicle roof, the outside of the roof cap has a particularly good surface quality. Further, this can also be dispensed with a kinematics for the lid for closing the storage space, whereby additional weight and cost can be saved. The top cloth is held on the body side via a clamping bracket in this embodiment, wherein the clamping bracket is firmly connected to the body.
  • To span the roof sections, a water and dirt-repellent top cloth is preferably used. The roof sections can be completely or partially covered by the top cloth. The term roof sections here comprises the roof cap, the at least one roof part and the rear window frame. The top cloth can in a preferred embodiment have transparent elements, for example in the rear window frame area. In this embodiment, the transparent element can replace the rear window. The top cloth can also be designed such that it has transparent elements in the region of one or more roof parts. In this embodiment, the roof cap and the roof part are excluded in the region of the transparent elements.
  • The top cloth also preferably spans a roof spar and a C-pillar. The roof spar are those elements which extend on both sides in each case at the outer edge of a motor vehicle roof between the windshield frame and C-pillar.
  • To displace the adjustable vehicle roof from the closed position into the open position, which is also called storage position, a drive unit, which may be rotatably or pivotally mounted on the body side, is provided. The drive unit is connected to a roof kinematics. The roof kinematics is arranged on both sides of the vehicle body and is symmetrical. In the following description, only one side of the roof kinematics will be described. The roof kinematics may have a multi-joint, for example a four-bar link, wherein the four-bar link is formed by a main link, a drive link and a base link. The main link is pivotally connected to the body side with a first end region and to the second end region with the base link. The drive link is connected to a first end region on a body-side bearing point and articulated to a second end region on the base link. At the drive handle engages a drive unit, which adjusts upon actuation, the drive link and thus the roof kinematics. By selecting the point of application of the drive unit at any position of the drive link, a desired kinematics curve of the roof kinematics can be determined. The roof spar is rigidly connected to the base link and is moved by this. The C-pillar is rigidly connected to the drive link and is moved by it. The base link is hinged to the roof cap and the at least one roof part. At least one coupling rod is pivotally connected to the roof cap and the roof part, whereby these roof sections are pivotable upon actuation of the roof kinematics. The coupling rod on the roof cap is coupled to the at least one roof part. The rear window frame is mounted on the body side with a first end. The second end of the rear window frame link is hinged to the rear window frame. The at least one roof part is further articulated to a second end of a Hilfenkers. A first end of the Hilflenkers is pivotally mounted on the body side.
  • The roof cap, the at least one roof part and the rear window frame are controlled in a preferred embodiment of a common roof kinematics. This results in a particularly simple and reliable movement between the roof sections. The roof kinematics can also be stored space-saving in the storage space due to their simple structure.
  • In a particularly preferred embodiment, a plurality of roof parts are provided, which can be deposited by the roof kinematics in overhead position.
  • In a further preferred embodiment, at least one middle roof part is arranged between a front and a rear roof part. The number of roof parts is determined by the length of the vehicle roof and the available size of the storage compartment. The smaller the overall length of the storage space, the more roof parts are required in a vehicle roof seen in the direction of travel.
  • The roof cap and the roof parts are executed in a development of the inventive concept simultaneously pivotable. The formation of the common roof kinematics causes the roof cap and roof parts are swung simultaneously and moved into the storage room. This makes it possible to realize particularly short opening and closing times of the adjustable vehicle roof.
  • In a further development of the inventive concept, the top cloth is fixedly connected to a region of the roof cap facing forwards in the direction of travel. In a rear-facing area, the convertible top cover loosely spans the roof cap. Furthermore, the top cloth is firmly connected to the at least one roof part. This embodiment has the advantage that, when the adjustable roof of the vehicle is opened, the convertible top cover can adapt to the movement of the front roof part, which prevents overstretching and damage to the convertible top cover.
  • In a further embodiment, the top cloth is at least partially connected to the rear window frame. The top cloth is preferably connected to the rear portion of the rear window frame. Such a connection can be done by gluing. It must be ensured that the top cloth can hold the weight of the rear window frame, since when opening the adjustable vehicle roof, the roof sections separate from each other and can no longer be supported against each other. Since the top cloth is viewed from the rear roof part seen in the direction of travel, the rear window frame can not fall uncontrollably into the storage compartment, but can be stored in the storage compartment with the help of the rear window frame handlebar.
  • The attachment of the top cloth is done in dependence of the respective motor vehicle associated roof kinematics and the geometry of the roof elements. Based on these parameters, it is determined with which area or areas / partial areas of the roof sections the top cover is firmly connected. The fixed connection over a partial area can therefore be carried out arbitrarily in front, in the middle or in the rear region of a roof element.
  • In a further embodiment, it is provided that the top cloth only spans at least one roof part loosely but in no area / partial area has a permanent connection with the roof part. As a result, the top cloth can adapt to the movement when opening the adjustable vehicle roof, whereby overstretching and damage to the top cloth is avoided.
  • The top cloth can be connected to a further roof part at least linear. The connecting line in this case runs essentially transversely to the vehicle longitudinal direction.
