The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.

depending on the year/model you might have to replace the entire cluster since it is all electronic

however, if you have an old school cluster, one where there is an actual cable controlling the speedometer then you can replace just the trip-meter.... however, find the parts will be tough and more often than not I end up replacing the cluster as an assembly anyways

My Toyota struggles in reverse, like it moves very slowly. Could this be something to do with gear box oil or gear box itself? Or maybe fuel pump?

If it was the fuel pump, the same condition would occur in the forward gears as in I don't think it is that.
Most likely culprit is in the transmission; reverse band or clutches. I would take the car to a certified mechanic that specializes in transmissions or to the dealership's repair shop.

sounds like a hot and cold issue with either the transmission or transmission computer module. take to dealership and have them take a look. its possible you have something faulty in there. Also check to see if you have transmission fluild in it to proper levels.

The transmissions on the cars are horrible. The torque converter is usually the cause. Call the dealer. Your transmission can seize and stop causing you to crash.

Fiesta revs struggling

ive seen transmissions cause this in high-end luxery cars... but that being said..

-sounds like your fuel filter is clogged. (i just shake mine out and run carb cleaner in it, which i do every 15,000 miles)
-could also be fuel pump
-loose battery terminal
-bad alternator
-clogged MAF sensor

What is the second drive gear for

The first one is over drive and the second is drive. It is best to just use overdrive when on the parkway and drive on slower back roads when there is hills and stop and go traffic. Overdrive is a higher gear.

I have a 2002 VW Passat 1.9TDi 130Tiptronic. Gears stopped

always get a second opinion from an accredited professional a transmission shop that works on your make of vehicle
may be a simple tcm /pcm or other electronic control module
To have the necessity to replace the box , the water would have had to get into the transmission or the mechanical/electronic sections

My 2002 passat 1.8 litre tiptronic automatic shift indicator is not moving? Would that be a switching problem on the shifter, transmission or lights?

Sounds like the whole shifting unit. It has a printed circuit strip unit that usually goes bad or a switch on the side of the transmission. What code is showing? You need to have it scanned at your VW dealership to correctly diagnose your exact problem
