    Hi,
    After 5 minutes driving our 2013 2.2 diesel FL2 (76k miles) red warning triangle is shown with "Restricted Performance" warning. This restricts acceleration. Two questions:
    1. Is it OK to keep driving even with this warning?
    2. What's the likely cause and cure?

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Hi
    I doubt it will clear by itself. General rule is to drive it to workshop not daily...

    Split in the actuator pipe, lower one, maybe, fuel filter when was that last changed it should be replaced every other service, did you actually notice any reduced performance despite what the car was trying you?
    Could it be DPF related have you recently used any bad diesel what diesel do you use.

    If you switch off the engine then switch on again, does it work ok again until the fault occurs again or is the fault there permanent?

    Hi, I’m in the same situation. 63 plate FL2 TD4, 53K,came up with Restricted Performance warning. So I changed fuel filter and waited for RAC to come and bleed the fuel filter ( yes, it requires proper bleed to prevent air lock not just the BP apparatus thing). All good for 2 days and sign is back. Warning doesn’t stay all the time but appears now and then. Thinking of changing actuator pipe, but it’s one hell of a job and nervous to change it by myself. Any advice? Thanks.

    Hi, My wife's FL2 TD4 had the same issue. I found the cause to be a split in the bottom hose of the intercooler to inlet manifold. Our LR approved service centre replaced this without having to dismantle the front bumper assembly. Labour was £130 + VAT, but had to buy the complete assembly (LR066429) at £119.97 + VAT. Apparently, it is usually the top hose that splits. So, either may be your problem. Hope this helps?

    Hi, many thanks for your info. Looks like a visit to dealer is inevitable now :) I’ll book it for this weekend and will update you all. Thank you.
