STRUCTURE FOR VEHICLE FRONT PART
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2001310767
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To reduce a shock in the case of application of a predetermined downward load or more while firmly supporting an upper part of a front fender in a predetermined height position.

The upper part of the front fender 2 is fixed to the upper part of a wheel apron 3 via a supporting member 10. The supporting member 10 is molded integrally with the front fender 2 formed of synthetic resin, and a plurality of supporting members 10 are arranged at certain intervals in the vehicle body longitudinal direction. Each of the supporting members 10 is provided with a first rib 11 and a second rib 12 extending in the vertical direction, and each of the ribs 11, 12 is formed into an L-shape substantially in the horizontal cross section. When a predetermined downward load or more is applied to the upper part of the front fender 2 from an obstacle S, the ribs 11, 12 are crushed and deformed, and consequently, a shock to the obstacle S is reduced. In a supporting member 20, each of ribs 21, 22 extending in the vertical direction is formed into a T-shape substantially in the horizontal cross section. In a supporting member 30 formed to be extended in the vehicle body longitudinal direction, an upper wall part 31 and a lower wall part 32 are connected together via a vertical rib 34 extending in the vertical direction.
