INTRUSION-MINIMIZING BRAKE PEDAL OPERATION


BHE041143300T02

• In a frontal collision, the brake pedal is forced rearward by the movement of the engine and other parts.

• Brackets A and B break away from bracket C, which is fixed to the body.

• Bracket B is freed allowing it and the pedal arm to rotate together at pivot fulcrum D of bracket A, thereby preventing the rearward movement of the brake pedal.
