FOOT-REST STRUCTURE FOR THE DRIVING SIDE OF THE FLOOR OF A MOTOR VEHICLE (© European Patent Office)

A foot-rest structure for the driving side of the floor of a motor vehicle comprises a foot-rest support (6), secured to the floor panel (4) of the motor vehicle, a covering element (7) mounted on said foot-rest support (6), and a lateral trim panel (2) having a front edge (20) connected to said covering element (7). The foot-rest support (6) is constituted by a three-dimensional body made of plastic material, defining a three-dimensional volume projecting from the floor panel (4), adjacent to said lateral trim panel (2), and having an inclined front surface (6A), a top surface (6B), and at least one lateral surface (6C), which faces the inside of the passenger compartment of the motor vehicle. The covering element (7) is constituted by a body made of plastic material, which is arranged over said foot-rest support (6) and has an inclined front wall (7A) arranged over said inclined front surface (6A) of the foot-rest support (6) and defining a foot-rest surface, and a top wall (7B) and a side wall (7C) arranged over said top surface (6B) and said at least a lateral surface (6C), respectively, of said foot-rest support (6). The covering element (7) and the foot-rest support (6) are provided with engagement elements (70) and seats (60) cooperating with said engagement elements (70) for their mutual rigid connection. The front edge (20) of the lateral trim panel (2) is connected only to said covering element (7), without any direct connection to said foot-rest support (6). The covering element (7) has the aforesaid inclined front wall (7A) that, on a side edge thereof facing the lateral trim panel (2), forms a channel (72) in which the front edge (20) of the lateral trim panel (2) is received, said front edge (20) of the lateral trim panel (2) and said channel (72) having engagement elements (21) and seats (73) cooperating with said engagement elements (21) for rigid connection of the lateral trim panel (2) to said covering element (7).
