That is the easiest problem to solve in the whole world of Phaeton problem-solving.
Just start the car, press the button aft of the gear selector that adjusts ride height, then select the highest ride height (you do this by watching the display screen in the middle). Let the car rise up to the highest setting, which will be confirmed in the display between the tachometer and the speedometer. This takes about 10 seconds.
Now, press the same button again (button with a picture of a shock absorber on it), turn the big knob on the front information display to reset the ride height to the 'normal' level, and wait another 10 seconds.
The car will rise up and then go back down as you go through this excercise, and when you are finished, the message will be gone.
The "Level Fault Workshop" message will sometimes appear after changing a tire, or after the car has been lifted on a hoist. This is because the suspension system reacts a bit like a cat (house pet) when you lift it up off the ground - it tries to keep it's feet on the ground until the last possible moment. As a result, it triggers an 'out of specification' warning when it is put back on the ground.
Cycling the suspension height up and then back down recalibrates the system and clears the fault.
It is NOTHING to worry about.
