BMW of North America is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 740i, 740Li, 740Lxi, 750i, 750xi, 750Li, and 750Lxi vehicles, and model year 2014 ActiveHybrid 7 vehicles.

The affected vehicles may have received incorrect replacement left rear taillight assemblies. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Vehicles with the incorrect left rear lamp assemblies may be less conspicuous to other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning in early August 2017. Dealers will then inspect the vehicles and replace any incorrect left rear taillight assemblies. These repairs will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.

For additional information, contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
