Description

The invention relates to a motor vehicle door lock with a door lock with a rotary latch and pawl and with a servo lock holder with an adjustable locking bolt, which transfers the vehicle door in the locking bolt in the closed position of the rotary latch from a pre-closed position to a final closed position, whereby

  • a drive device works on the locking bolt with the interposition of an actuating rocker,
  • the actuating rocker is pivotally mounted with its one rocker end on a mounting plate and
  • the other rocker end of the actuating rocker is acted upon by an actuating element which can be driven by the drive device.

In the context of the invention are with motor vehicle door lock also closures for e.g. trunk flaps, Tailgates or hoods meant. With the servo lock holder is a closing aid, the Vehicle door from a pre-closing position to a final closing position against the resistance of, for example a door seal, but also in order to to achieve quiet door closing. For example can be attached to a door spar mounting plate it is also a fixed base plate, the housing wall act of a lock holder housing or the like.

With motor vehicle door locks of the type described at the beginning Embodiment, the vehicle door is moved to the final closed position regularly so that the catch of the the locking bolt installed in the vehicle door, which is also used as a locking piston, locking bar or locking wedge can be carried out a z. B. on a door handle arranged servor lock holder initially in the main click position reaches around or behind, whereupon the locking bolt is adjusted via the associated drive unit until the vehicle door has reached its final closed position. In this context, eccentric locking bolts are known, where the locking bolt is around an eccentric axis is pivoted. The eccentric mounting of the locking bolt requires a considerable locking pin deflection. A locking bolt movement results from this locking bolt deflection, that of the actual closing direction the vehicle door deviates significantly. This creates Torque losses, the powerful drives for servo lock holders desire. Add to that eccentric deflecting Lock bolts generally special lock designs demand, especially with regard to the rotary latch mounting (cf. DE 42 10 893 A1).

Attempts have also been made to close the Vehicle door essentially through a linear locking bolt movement to reach (cf. DE 34 01 842 A1, DE 44 10 712 A1). Such motor vehicle door locks or movement devices are constructive, however relatively complex and regularly require one for example, space not available in the door rail.

Furthermore, one knows a motor vehicle door lock at the beginning described embodiment, which per se has proven itself, but can be improved in terms of construction is (see DE 37 21 963 C1). Because with this known embodiment is a servo lock holder with a striker realized on an operating rocker and connected to a parallel guide arm is, which is firmly connected to the door frame Mounting plate is pivotally mounted, the Actuating rocker to a drive device with Crank drive is connected. The individual is Locking wedge through connecting elements to the operating rocker and connected to the guide arm if necessary, which passed through recesses in a profiled sheet are, with the mounting plate on the inside of the Door frame forming profile sheet is attached. - Here uses the invention.

The invention has for its object a motor vehicle door lock the embodiment described above to create oneself in a constructive way Regarding simple and compact design, which is also inexpensive and almost linear Lock bolt movement when closing the vehicle door in the End closed position guaranteed.

The invention solves this problem with a generic one Motor vehicle door lock in that the locking bolt is attached directly to the control arm. In this respect, a practically overhung locking bolt realized the invention in a predetermined Distance to the swing arm end facing away from the drive side Swing arm end arranged on the operating rocker is. - The invention is based on the knowledge that the swivel bearing of the operating rocker and the Fastening point of the locking bolt on the control arm let set up so that when pivoting the Swing arm the center of the arc for the Lock bolt movement in this way outside the locking bolt center lies that consequently by one relatively large radius swivel movement an almost linear locking bolt movement to reach the Final closing position is achieved. The in the inventive Motor vehicle door lock occurring locking pin deflection is extremely small, so that the otherwise usual torque losses and drive power be significantly reduced. It also stands out the embodiment of the invention by an extreme simple and small construction from the inexpensive and is easy to accommodate in the door handle area leaves.

Further features essential to the invention are as follows listed. So the invention provides that the locking bolt is passed through the mounting plate and the Mounting plate in the direction of movement of the locking bolt oblong slot for the reciprocable Has locking bolt. This way, a flawless one Lock bolt guide reached. Of course the locking bolt can also be opposite the mounting plate be provided. Then of course there is an elongated hole unnecessary in the mounting plate.

In addition, stable storage for the Actuating swing arm achieved when preferably the operating swing arm an elongated hole guide running in the swivel direction for a guide pin attached to the mounting plate has and this guide pin on his through the slot guide led end of a pin Has supports for the operating rocker. It can the locking pin between the swivel bearing and the slot guide the actuating rocker be arranged.

The invention further provides that the actuating rocker from a spring, e.g. B. flat spiral spring is applied, which the actuating rocker constantly against the actuator presses. Hence, a perfect contact between the rocker arm and the drive side Actuator ensures that the driven Actuator, the control arm and consequently the Locking bolt transferred to one end position and the Spring for the return of the control arm and the Locking bolt ensures when the actuator is in its Starting position returns. The control arm is expediently as a lever with one of the spring and the Actuator acted on tail-like lever extension educated. Such a lever extension is reduced on the one hand the mass of the operating rocker to be moved, on the other hand ensures material savings. - The drive device preferably has an electric motor a gearbox or geared motor, possibly a clutch and otherwise an output shaft on a drive element works with the actuator. The output element is conveniently as one with a pinion or a worm gear meshing on the output shaft, the actuator as a in the edge area of the Gear arranged control pin, which when driven Gear works as a crank pin. The electric motor is designed so that the actuator in each both engine dead spots tight on the control arm runs up and consequently blocks them in both end positions, which, for example, after closing the vehicle door a firm hold of the vehicle door in the closing position and consequently ensured in the final closed position becomes. In principle, the drive can also be "relaxed" be carried out, for example by that the drive motor is stopped in two defined positions will and the connection with the operating rocker via a self-locking gear.

The drive unit can be used to change the sequence of movements Actuating rocker and therefore controlling the locking bolt and limit the adjustment path of the locking bolt Circuit arrangement to be connected. In this context it may also be sufficient that the actuating rocker on a microswitch for switching the motor on and off is working.

In the motor vehicle door lock according to the invention, the Servo lock holder on the door frame or a door handle be screwed on and therefore has a special Strength in the event of a vehicle crash. In which Door lock can be an embodiment that with devices for electrical opening, central locking, for child safety and for theft protection is equipped.

In the following, the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to a drawing showing only one exemplary embodiment. Show it:

A motor vehicle door lock is shown in the figures, which is a door-side in its basic structure Door lock with indicated rotary latch 1 and pawl 2 and a servo lock holder 3 on the door frame side with an adjustable locking pin 4, which the vehicle door at the locking bolt 4 in the closed position encompassing catch 1 from a pre-closing position in transferred a final closing position. On the locking bolt 4 a drive device 5 operates with the interposition an operating rocker 6. The operating rocker 6 is with its one swing end 6a on a mounting plate 7 pivoted. This connects the Actuating rocker 6 with the mounting plate 7 under the Embodiment by means of hollow bolts, the ends are crimped. Through these hollow bolts there are fastening screws led to the connection to the body.

The mounting plate 7 is attached to an associated door spar. Of course, it is also within the scope of the invention the mounting plate 7 and a body component in one piece to execute. In any case, the mounting plate 7 primarily takes over the task for a firm connection between the Drive unit 5 and the body or the door spar too to care.

The other swing end 6b of the operating rocker 6 is acted upon by an actuator 8, which of the Drive device 5 can be driven. The locking bolt 4 is attached to the operating rocker 6 and practical stored on the fly. Furthermore, the locking pin 4 is in one specified distance to the swing arm end on the drive side 6b remote swing end 6a on the operating rocker 6 arranged. The locking bolt 4 is through the Mounting plate 7 passed. The mounting plate 7 has a extending in the direction of movement of the locking bolt 4 Elongated hole 9 for the reciprocating locking bolt 4 on. The locking pin 4 is between the pivot point 10 and an elongated hole guide 11 of the actuating rocker 6 arranged.

In particular from FIGS. 1 and 3 it is clear that by the pivoting movement of the actuating rocker 6 around their Pivot point 10 of the circular arc center is relatively lies far outside the center of the locking bolt, and that by consequently a relatively large Radius - approx. 20 mm according to the embodiment - accomplished Panning movement is a largely linear movement (Double arrow in the X direction) of the locking bolt 4 by approx. 8 mm until the final closing position of the vehicle door is reached is effected. At the aforementioned pivot point 10 is the Actuating rocker 6 rotatable about an associated hollow pin stored. Compared to this hollow bolt or Pivot point 10 is a (largely linear) movable Bearing with reference to a guide pin 12, which is also designed as a hollow bolt. Accordingly is the operating rocker 6 after screwing the hollow bolt (pivot point. 10 and guide pin 12) with the vehicle body pivotable about these two points stored.

The occurring deflection of the locking bolt 4 in through the Y direction indicated by a double arrow is extremely small and according to the exemplary embodiment is only approx. 0.4 mm. By arranging the pivot point 10 of the Actuating rocker 6 and consequently a center of a circular arc as far as possible outside the locking bolt 4 and due to the pivoting movement around a relatively large radius surprisingly succeeds in an essentially linear Movement of the attached to the operating rocker 6 Locking bolt 4.

The actuating rocker 6 has one in the pivoting direction extending slot guide 11 for the on the mounting plate 7 attached guide pin 12 on. The guide pin 12 has on his through the slot guide 11 Pin end of a support 13 for the actuating rocker 6. The actuating rocker 6 is by a spring 14, e.g. B. applied flat spiral spring, which the actuating rocker 6 constantly against the actuator 8 presses. Furthermore, the actuating rocker 6 is a lever one acted upon by the spring 14 and the actuator 8 tail-like lever extension 15 formed.

The drive device 5 has an electric motor 16 Gear 17 and an output shaft 18 for an output element 19 with the actuator 8. The output element 19 is as one with a snail on the Output shaft 18 meshing gear and the actuator 8 as an arranged in the edge region of the gear Control pin trained. The operating rocker 6 works on a microswitch 20 for switching the on and off Electric motor 16.
