Nissan Motor Co. (NSANY) will recall about 841,000 vehicles worldwide to fix a steering wheel glitch, the Japanese automaker announced Thursday.

Japan's No. 2 automaker is recalling certain models of the Micra compact car produced in Britain and Japan between 2002 and 2006, as well as the Cube, produced in Japan around the same period. Additionally, the company is calling back vehicles in Japan, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

According to a statement filed by Nissan with the Japanese Transport Ministry, the bolt used in the steering wheel of the affected vehicles may not have been properly tightened, and at worst the steering wheel may not function. No accidents, injuries or deaths have been reported as a result of the steering wheel glitch.

Nissan will fix the glitch by either tightening the bolts or replacing the whole steering wheel – a repair that will take about 40 minutes.

Last month, Nissan announced a recall of more than 123,000 Altima sedans in the U.S. to adjust the inflation of the spare tires, which could be over- or under-inflated.
