Question about 2004 Volkswagen Beetle
There are 4 transmission speed sensors , and they are all located inside the transmission.You will need to remove the rear cover to access 3 of them and remove and disassemble the trans to get to the others.This is not a do it yourself job or a job for the average mechanic.The person working on this transmission will need specific knowledge of this transmission.Good Luck!

Unfortunately with your post I don't know exactly what transmission you have , and am assuming you are looking for the transmission output speed sensor. The sensor should point straight down and go thru the top of the transmission with one bolt securing it, It will have a 2 wire connector plugged into the top of it. Buying a new sensor and using it to compare to the old one sometimes helps if you are not familiar with what it looks like.

When transmission is installed, the sensor is covered by the left transmission mount.
- Transmission must be unbolted from moutns and lowered approximately 2.5" to access sensor
- Disconnect harness connector from sensor and remove sensor retaining bolt.
- When installing, replace seal.
- Tighten retaining bolt to 10 Nm (7 ft-lb.)
But before you do that, check/clean the electrical connections on the transmission...particularly the round connector on top of the transmission. Disconnect, clean with electrical contact cleaner, blow it out with compressed air, spray with WD-40 and reconnect it. to get to the connectors You'll probably have to remove the airbox, its on top of the transmission
