As part of its global recall of 1.3-million cars of its 5-series and 6-series models, German luxury auto maker BMW will recall 3,422 cars in India over faulty battery cable cover.
The recall affects 5- and 6-Series BMWs built between 2007 and 2010, a spokesperson for the automaker said.
The company says that in some cars the battery cable cover inside the boot may be incorrectly fitted and, over time, could chafe through the insulation on the cables, which, could result in an electrical system malfunction.
Should the exposed cable come in contact with the body, however, it could result in charring of the cables or, in a worst-case scenario, fire.
These cars are old versions of the two models, and the 5-Series were assembled at BMW's plant in Chennai plant in India, while the 6-Series cars were imported.
BMW will get the replacement parts for these 3,422 cars within a month and replace the battery cable cover of the affected cars.
The repair procedure would take about 30 minutes to an hour and would be free of charge to customers.
