A glass run for use in a sashless door-type automobile, which is capable of exhibiting excellent sealing property and being readily produced without generating any crack in connection faces. The glass run includes an upper side portion, a vertical side portion and a corner portion. In the upper side portion, a glass run section and a trim section are integrally formed. The trim section has a side wall on the side of the glass run section, a side wall on the side of an automobile body, and a bottom wall with a generally U-shaped cross-section. The corner portion includes an upper side connection part and a vertical side connection part. Connection faces between the upper side connection part of the corner portion and the upper side portion are inclined to a longitudinal direction of the upper side portion.

An airbag of an airbag device for a front passenger seat includes a passenger-side wall, a circumferential wall, a gas inlet port disposed in a vicinity of the front end of the airbag as deployed, a bottom pocket that is recessed upward from a lower region of the circumferential wall in such a manner as to be continuous with the lower region, and a tether that is disposed generally along a front and rear direction inside the airbag and connects the passenger-side wall and a vicinity of the gas inlet port. The bottom pocket is formed into a pouch like contour by joining outer circumferential edges of left and right bottom pocket constituent regions that extend from the lower region of the circumferential wall. The upper end region of the bottom pocket is joined to the tether.

An airbag of an airbag device includes a connection port to be joined with an inflator and a flexible reinforcing sheet disposed inside the connection port. The reinforcing sheet includes a first cover region and a second cover region each of which wraps the leading end of the inflator and has an opening for providing gas communication with a main body of the airbag. The first cover region has a double-folded configuration that is doubled on a crease which crosses an axial direction of the inflator while the second cover region has a double-folded configuration that is doubled on a crease extending in parallel to the axial direction of the inflator. The first cover region and second cover region are arranged in such an overlapped fashion that the crease of the first cover region continues to the crease of the second cover region.

An airbag of an airbag device for a drivers seat includes an exhaust strap which includes a cover section that closes off an outer opening of a vent hole at airbag deployment in an openable fashion and connecting bands extending from opposite sides of the cover section and joined to a driver-side wall. The exhaust strap is so configured, when the driver-side wall of the airbag cushions the driver at airbag deployment and moves toward a vehicle-side wall, that the connecting bands loosen and allow a region towards a distant edge of the cover section to loosen and pass through the outer opening such that the outer opening and an inner opening communicate to open the vent hole. The length of the distant edge of the exhaust strap is shorter than a length of a proximate edge of the exhaust strap.

An airbag of an airbag device for a drivers seat includes an exhaust strap which includes a cover section that closes off an outer opening of a vent hole at airbag deployment and connecting bands extending from opposite sides of the cover section and joined to the center of a driver-side wall. When the driver-side wall of the airbag cushions the driver at airbag deployment and moves toward a vehicle-side wall, the connecting bands of the exhaust strap loosen and allow a distant edge region of the cover section to loosen and pass through the outer opening such that the outer opening and an inner opening communicate to open the vent hole. The cover section includes a reinforcing element that prevents the distant edge from slipping towards a proximate edge while allowing a bending deformation of the distant edge to pass through the outer opening and open the vent hole.

A lateral partition of a side airbag apparatus extends in a front-rear direction to divide the interior of an airbag into an upper inflation chamber and a lower inflation chamber. A vertical partition extends vertically and includes a communication portion. The vertical partition divides the upper inflation chamber into an upper-rear inflation chamber, to which inflation gas from a gas generator is supplied, and an upper-front inflation chamber, to which the inflation gas is supplied via the communication portion. An inner tube regulates the flow of the inflation gas to direct to the upper-rear inflation chamber and the lower inflation chamber. The rear ends of two first fabric portions of the vertical partition are joined to the upper parts of the front ends of two second fabric portions of the inner tube by a first vertical joint portion.

An interior component has a projecting portion projecting rearward at a position forward and downward from a vehicle occupant when the occupant maintains a sitting posture in a passenger compartment. The interior component has a front inclined surface section and a rear inclined surface section in a lower section of the projecting portion. A retainer and air-direction changing members arranged in the retainer are arranged immediately below the projecting portion at positions forward from the front inclined surface section. A manipulating member is arranged above the rear inclined surface section with at least a part of the manipulating member exposed rearward from the projecting portion. A first transmission mechanism and a second transmission mechanism, which transmit movement of the manipulating member to the air-direction changing members, are arranged in the interior component.

A lighting member includes a light guiding element, and a housing including a cover element and a light-guiding-element attachment claw. The cover element is formed as a frame shape, is capable of deforming elastically, and covers an outer peripheral face of the light guiding element over the entire circumference. The light-guiding-element attachment claw is disposed integrally with the cover element, and protrudes diametrically toward an inner side beyond the outer peripheral face of the light guiding element. The housing has an inner peripheral face facing the outer peripheral face of the light guiding element, and further includes a larger-clearance portion and smaller-clearance portion. The larger-clearance portion provides a larger clearance between the inner peripheral face of the cover element and the outer peripheral face of the light guiding element than does the smaller-clearance portion between them.

A fuel supply apparatus is configured to feed a fuel supplied from a filler port through a filler file to a fuel tank. A grid member that is configured to allow for insertion into a fuel passage formed by the filler pipe and move along the fuel passage and serve to prevent suction of the fuel is held at a placement site in the filler pipe. The placement site is provided at a higher position in a vertical direction than a liquid level of the fuel in the filler pipe. This configuration enhances the effectiveness for preventing suction of the fuel from the filler pipe.
