Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0959217A2] One side of the at least one double-acting hydraulic vehicle roof panel operating cylinder (3) is linked to the vehicle, and the other side to the tailgate.

A pipe (22) leading to the tank (17) opens in at least one connecting pipe (4,5) to the operating cylinder and contains a proportional pressure valve (23).
