Hi! I have to understand how a parking lock described in a patent works, but I cannot really get it. The text is french, however, there is an online translation into English. The link to the patent is the following: http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/biblio?CC=FR&NR=2964925A1&KC=A1&FT=D&ND=3&date=20120323&DB=worldwide.espacenet.com&locale=en_EP On the left hand you can see the tab: Description. If u click on it, you get the french text. Above the text there is a button for the translation. The Figures are to be found in the tab "Mosaics". My basic question is in which state is the spring 22 in Fig. 1 and 2? I know it is shown to be compressed in Fig. 1, but I cannot really get how this mechanism works. Could please anyone give me a hand? I could also present my explanation or some introductory thinngs, but I d prefer not to influence you. Thanks a lot!
