2. Description of the Related Art Among rear strut tower structures for automobiles, the rear strut tower is provided at a side portion of a rear wheel house inner, and is disposed above the rear parcel member having a closed sectional structure extending in the vehicle width direction. In the so-called low mount type structure, it is necessary to connect and arrange the strut tower bars across the left and right rear strut towers in order to secure the inward falling rigidity of the rear strut tower.

On the other hand, instead of such a low mount type structure, a rear strut tower is provided on the upper surface portion of the rear wheel house inner and extends upward as shown in, for example, Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication No. 5-213234. A so-called high mount type structure has been proposed in which the rear parcel members are abutted and joined to each other by striking them out and straddling the side surfaces of the left and right rear strut towers.

[0004]

In the above-described high mount type structure, the rear parcel member can function as a strut bar to secure the inward falling rigidity of the rear strut tower, but the suspension input in the vertical direction is rear The joint portion between the strut tower and the rear parcel member acts in the shearing direction, which is disadvantageous in terms of strength.

Therefore, it is considered that the rear strut tower is butt-joined to the lower wall of the rear parcel member to form a high mount type structure. Even if it is joined to the wall, the rear parcel member constitutes a skeleton member having a closed cross section, but since the lower wall itself is a single panel and the rear parcel member has a large thin section, the vertical direction The suspension input may locally act on the lower wall to cause cross-sectional deformation of the rear parcel member.

Therefore, according to the present invention, the rear parcel member is not locally deformed, so that the rigidity in the vehicle width direction and the rigidity in the vertical direction of the rear strut tower can be enhanced, and the rigidity in the front-rear direction can also be enhanced. It provides the structure.

[0007]

According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a rear parcel member having a closed cross-section structure in which a shock absorber mounting bracket formed at an upper end of a rear strut tower formed in a rear wheel house inner extends in a vehicle width direction. It is connected to the lower wall and surrounds the shock absorber connecting portion of the shock absorber mounting bracket to jointly arrange a reinforcement over the lower wall and the upper wall of the rear parcel member to close the shock absorber connecting portion. It is characterized in that a cross section is formed.

According to a second aspect of the present invention, the side edge portion of the rear strut tower according to the first aspect, including the side edge portion of the shock absorber mounting bracket, is wholly joined to the rear pillar inner. .

According to a third aspect of the present invention, the shock absorber is attached to the upper wall of the rear parcel member according to the first and second aspects of the present invention by inclining downwardly to the side at the portion corresponding to the rear strut tower connection. It is characterized in that an inclined wall that is joined to the bracket surface is formed, a working hole is formed in a portion above the shock absorber connecting portion of the inclined wall, and a reinforcement is joined and arranged at a peripheral edge of the working hole.

According to a fourth aspect of the present invention, the upper wall of the rear parcel member according to the first to third aspects is integrally formed with the upper end portion of the rear seat back panel, and the side portion of the rear seat back panel is in front of the rear strut tower. It is characterized by being joined to the side surface.

[0011]

According to the first aspect of the present invention, the shock absorber mounting bracket of the rear strut tower is connected to the lower wall of the rear parcel member, the shock absorber connecting portion is surrounded, and the closed cross section is formed by the reinforcement. Therefore, the suspension input can be borne by the entire rear parcel member having the closed cross-section structure without locally deforming the lower wall of the rear parcel member, and in addition to the rigidity in the vehicle width direction and the vertical direction rigidity of the rear strut tower,
The rigidity in the front-rear direction can be increased.

According to the second aspect, in addition to the effect of the first aspect, the suspension input acting on the strut tower can be directly applied to the rear pillar which is a vertical frame member at the rear part of the vehicle body. The rigidity of can be further increased.

According to claim 3, in addition to the effects of claims 1 and 2, the inclined wall of the upper wall of the rear parcel member is joined to the shock absorber mounting bracket surface at the portion corresponding to the rear strut tower coupling portion. Since the vertical suspension input is received by the inclined wall in the vertical direction, the vertical rigidity of the rear strut tower can be further enhanced.

Further, since the working hole is formed in the inclined wall having the surface rigidity against the input of the suspension in the vertical direction and the reinforcement is joined to the periphery of the working hole, the working hole is formed in the upper wall of the rear parcel member. The decrease in rigidity can be avoided, and the original function of the rear parcel member as a strong skeletal member is not slightly impaired.

According to claim 4, in addition to the effects of claims 1 to 3, since the vertical suspension input acting on the rear strut tower can be received by the shear surface of the rear seat back panel, the vertical rigidity of the rear strut tower is increased. And the torsional rigidity of the rear part of the vehicle body can be further improved.

The vertical rigidity of No. 4 can be further enhanced, and the torsional rigidity of the rear portion of the vehicle body can be further enhanced.

Further, since the inclined wall 15 of the upper wall 9 of the rear parcel member 7 is joined to the surface of the shock absorber mounting bracket 5 at the portion corresponding to the connecting portion of the strut tower 4, the suspension input in the vertical direction is applied to this inclined wall 15. Thus, the vertical strut of the rear strut tower 4 can be further enhanced because the rear strut tower 4 can be received in the up-down direction, that is, received by the shear surface of the inclined wall 15 to favorably transmit the input to the general portion side of the upper wall 9.

Further, a working hole 16 is formed in this inclined wall 15 having a surface rigidity with respect to the vertical suspension input,
Since the reinforcement 13 is arranged so as to be joined to the periphery of the work hole 16, the work hole 1 in the upper wall 9 of the rear parcel member 7 is formed.
The reduction in rigidity due to the formation of 6 can be avoided, and the function as the original strength skeletal member of the rear parcel member is not impaired.
