AbstractThe invention is concerned with an assembly for providing a connection between a support 1, for example, a body part of a motor vehicle, and a plate element 2, for example, a wall panel of a motor vehicle. The assembly generally includes a molded plastic holding element 4 which can be releasably connected into an aperture 3 of the support 1. The holding element 4 is equipped with a head piece 5. The assembly also includes an upper part or component 6 which is attachable to the plate element 2. Between the upper part 6 and the holding element 4 is a middle piece or component 7. The middle piece 7 includes an upper area 8 which is designed so that it can be snapped into the upper part 6. A lower portion 9 of the middle piece 7 is designed for lateral insertion of the head piece 5 of the holding element 4. The relationship between the middle part 7 and the other two components of the assembly is such that significant compensation for tolerance and distance variations is provided in directions transverse and perpendicular to the plate element 2.
