Frankfurt  - BMW, the world’s largest premium carmaker, is recalling about 1.3 million cars for repair worldwide due to a possible problem with a battery cable cover in the car boot, it said on Monday.

The recall affects 5  and 6 Series BMWs built between 2003 and 2010, BMW said.

“In some remote cases, the battery cable cover inside the boot of these vehicles may be incorrectly mounted,” it said.

“This can result in the electrical system malfunctioning, the vehicle failing to start and, in some cases, to charring or fire,” the company said, adding it was not aware of any accidents or injuries to people due to the problem.

BMW said it was writing to car owners. The repair procedure in a BMW partner workshop would take about 30 minutes and would be free of charge to customers, it added.

The recall affects about 290 000 cars in Germany, BMW said.
