      Usually no reverse requires rebuild to fix.

      1.. If it will drive forward see if it has 3rd. They share a common componant.

      2.. Also as you drive forward "throw"it in manual low to see if it "engine brakes".

      If either one of these is the case then you need a new trans. If #1 then you have direct clutch problem. If #2 you have low & reverse problem. NOte: these terms (low and reverse and direct clutch) are "transmission industry terms". VW specific terms may differ.
      Auto trans fluid change or flush will not make a trans fail. Stop spreading the wives tale/urban myth.
