BMW recalls some of their 1.3 million cars worldwide due to faulty car parts.

The recall affects 5 and 6 Series BMWs built between 2003 and 2010, the manufacturer has said, and concerns a fault with the battery cable cover inside the boot of a small proportion of these models.

BMW recalls 5 and 6 series cars

BMW is concern with the fault found in their 5 and 6 series cars and issued a recall as a precautionary measure. The fault was found in the incorrect mounting of the cable cover could lead to the car's electrical system malfunctioning, the vehicle failing to start and even to charring or fire in some cases, BMW warned.

However, there is no need for motorists to panic as the chances of a car being affected by the fault are minute.

So far, fewer than one per cent of inspected vehicles were found to exhibit the problem, Reuters reports.

Around 109,000 cars are due to be recalled in the UK, with BMW to contact the owners in writing.

They will then be able to bring their car to a BMW-authorised garage for a 30-minute free repair procedure.
