BMW of North America is recalling 16 model year 2020-2021 740Li, 740 Li xDrive, 750Li xDrive, M760Li xDrive, and Alpina B7 vehicles.

The top child seat tether anchor on the rear middle seat may not be readily accessible.

A child restraint system placed on the vehicle's rear middle seat without utilizing the three-point safety belt, could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will install a top tether anchor cover at the rear middle seating position.

This recall is expected to begin August 24, 2020.

Until these vehicles are remedied, owners should utilize the outboard rear seating positions which are equipped with an accessible top tether anchor, or, the middle rear seating position and the vehicle's three-point safety belt.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
