Tesla has issued a recall for 11,000 of its Model X SUVs globally over a faulty locking mechanism in their rear seats, Reuters reports. The automaker said the affected part could lead to the seats falling forward as a result of an accident.

Tesla said that the affected models were produced between October 28 last year and August 16 this year. The apparent fault lies with a small number of cables located in the second row fold-flat seats, which may need to be adjusted to fix the issue.

The company added that only around three percent of the recalled vehicles may have the issue. The fault was detected during internal testing conducted by the company. It added that there had been no reported issues or accidents related to the problem.

In April, the automaker had recalled 2,700 Model X units in the United States to rectify a faulty locking hinge in the third-row seats. The fully-electric vehicle, which features novel Falcon Wing rear doors, was unveiled in September 2015, and was updated last year with a new baseline model, the Model X75D, in place of the 70D.
