if you replaced the speedo sensor and gear, the problem is the gear that drives the speedo gear. it is on the differential and is only replaceable by removing and disassembling transmission. this is somewhat common on vw's. the only other possibility is the wiring but i'd say its about a 95% chance you have a bad drive gear on the differential.

Start by checking the wiring to the VSS (sensor) . Plug has 3 wires. One of the outside wires should have 12 volts when ignition on. Other outside wire should have an earth of no more than 5 ohms impedance. Centre wire should give an earth pulse when gearbox is turning. If live and earth are good, but no pulse, then sensor or its drive gear is broken. Problem is usually sensor suffering ppor earth connection. Ok to cut earth wire before sensor and atach to sutable earth point.
