To provide a grill installation structure that is capable of firmly supporting an air outlet of a grill body of an air-conditioning grill to a grill installation part of an installation member even when the grill installation part of the installation member is designed to have a notched shape. A finisher of the grill installation part is formed in a notched shape such that an air-conditioning grill unit is insertable in a direction (grill insertion direction Ig) orthogonal to an opening direction of the air outlet, and the finisher includes a grill fixing part on the back. The air-conditioning grill unit includes an outer peripheral flange disposed frontward to a front surface side of the finisher, and the air-conditioning grill unit includes a grill holding plate that is installed in the grill fixing part from a back thereof.

A vehicle-mounted temperature adjustment device included in a vehicle air-conditioning device includes a low-water-temperature circuit through which low-water-temperature cooling water circulates. In addition, the vehicle-mounted temperature adjustment device has a compressor, a condenser, a subcooling condenser, an expansion valve, which is one example of a first expansion unit, an expansion valve, which is one example of a second expansion unit, and an evaporator and refrigerant-water heat exchanger, and includes a refrigeration circuit that performs temperature adjustment of a temperature-adjustment target. The low-water-temperature circuit has a sub-radiator that releases heat of the low-water-temperature cooling water that has been subjected to heat exchange with refrigerant at the subcooling condenser.

A large-sized head up display unit can be reasonably provided in an inner portion of an instrument panel. A column bracket to mount a steering column (5) is provided at a lower portion of a vehicle body strength member (4) extending in a vehicle width direction disposed in a vehicle rear side of a front wall panel (1) of a vehicle interior. A head up display unit (21) is mounted on the column bracket to be movable to a vehicle upward direction by an emergency input load from a vehicle front direction.

A cup holder includes a cup holder body which has a bottomed container shape and is capable of accommodating a beverage container; a decorative finisher member which is installed in an upper edge portion of the cup holder body; a light guide member which is interposed between a lower portion of the finisher member and an upper edge portion of the cup holder body. A light-guide-member installation part and a finisher-member fixing part are provided in the cup holder body. The finisher-member fixing part fixes the finisher member to the cup holder body in a state where the finisher member is separated with a gap part from an upper side of the light guide member.

A drive circuit for a semiconductor switching element includes an overcurrent protection circuit, a short-circuit protection circuit, and a determination time changing circuit. The overcurrent protection circuit judges that a principal current become an overcurrent when a sense voltage proportional to magnitude of the principal current excesses over a first threshold value, and then reduces the principal current. The short-circuit protection circuit reduces a gate voltage of the semiconductor switching element more quickly than the reduction of the principal current by the overcurrent protection circuit when the principal current becomes a greater overcurrent. The determination time changing circuit makes a determination time needed for determining whether or not to operate the overcurrent protection circuit longer when the magnitude of the principal current gets smaller based on a comparison result between the judgement result of the overcurrent protection circuit and a second threshold value.

In a vehicle air-conditioner safety device, in the case in which an abnormality has occurred in a heating device that heats coolant with a heater: it is determined whether or not the abnormality is a restorable abnormality or a non-restorable abnormality; when the abnormality is determined to be the restorable abnormality, it is determined whether or not the restorable abnormality has been removed; heating by the heater is prohibited when the restorable abnormality or the non-restorable abnormality has occurred; and heating by the heater is restored when the restorable abnormality has been removed after heating by the heater is prohibited due to occurrence of the restorable abnormality. With the above-mentioned vehicle air-conditioner safety device, in the case in which the restorable abnormality has occurred in a heating device for a vehicle air-conditioner and the restorable abnormality has not been removed, because heating by the heater is prohibited, it is possible to prevent repetitive restoration and halt of heating by the heater.

A gas compressor (1) includes a block part (19) inside which a cylinder chamber (32) is formed; a rotor (23) rotatably housed in the cylinder chamber (32); and vanes (25) provided on an outer circumferential portion of the rotor (23) at intervals in a circumferential direction of the rotor (23) such that the vanes (25) can emerge from the outer circumferential portion. The block part (19) has a pressure supply part configured to supply pressure to backpressure spaces (77) behind the vanes (25). This pressure supply part has an intermediate-pressure supply part (51, 67) which communicates with each backpressure space (77) from an intake cycle to a compression cycle in the compression chamber (33), a first high-pressure supply part (53, 69) which communicates with the backpressure space (77) from the compression cycle to a discharge cycle in the compression chamber (33), and a second high-pressure supply part (72) which is formed between the intermediate-pressure supply part (67) and the first high-pressure supply part (69) independently of the first high-pressure supply part (69) and which communicates with the backpressure space (77) in a middle of the compression cycle in the compression chamber (33).

An object is mainly to prevent a receiving reaction force to a knee input load from rapidly dropping. The present invention relates to a knee protector for a vehicle in which an upper bracket (23) which generates a high reaction force to a knee input load and a lower bracket (24) which generates a reaction force lower than the upper bracket (23) are directly or indirectly attached, in a vertical position, to a vehicle body strength member (21). At least the upper bracket (23) has a closed cross-section part (31) on at least a part of the upper bracket (23). In addition, an inwardly protruding part (32) which inwardly protrudes is formed in at least one surface of the closed cross-section part (31).
