Title:
STRUCTURE FOR FRONT OF VEHICLE BODY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/084814
Kind Code:
A2
Abstract:
 Provided is a structure that is for the front of a vehicle body and that can reduce repair costs when a vehicle collision occurs. In the structure for the front of a vehicle body, a replaceable bracket 20 is provided between a crash box 18 and a front side member 12, and is a separate member to a radiator support 14 and can be attached to and detached from said radiator support 14. The replaceable bracket 20 is fixed to a vertical pillar 14a of the radiator support 14 at the outside in the width direction of the vehicle and is fixed to the front side member 12. Thus, upon frontal collision, a front bumper reinforcement 16 is displaced outwards and to the rear of the vehicle, whereby the crash box 18 is deformed and the collision load outwards in the width direction of the vehicle causes the replaceable bracket 20 to be deformed or damaged. Thereby, damage to the radiator support 14 is restricted, and replacing the replaceable bracket 20 will suffice in many cases.
