as per vw, you need to check transmission oil level., not an easy thing to do. if transmission oil level ok (no dipstick on these by the way). it is a mecahnical fault.

im in the same boat with a 2001 jetta,at least you got a successful scan,,so drop the trany pan and lower the valve body ,and replace it,it should be the one with no ohmn reading (open circuit)there are 7 in mine ,5 of one kind and two of another ,not sure what you will find. one is 40 bucks the other about$ 140.00u.s.

Yes, they can be rebuilt. But you could find it pretty tough to find someone to rebuild just the R (reverse) depending on where you are. And unless all bad gears are replaced, it may not worth dismantling them in the first place.

Best approach is to drain the tranny fluid and refill with new type F fluid. This fluid is great for restoring poor performance due to sticking clutch bands and valves.
