Default dsg worth repairing?

Hi everyone

Bought a mk5 golf tdi with bkd 2.0 and dsg issues. vcds scan gives the following: all auto trans related, no engine faults.

18203- vehicle vehicle speed signal
p1795-002- open circuit- intermittant- mil on

17116- gear 2
p0732- 000- incorrect ratio- intermittant

19143- unexpected/implausible mechanical gear disengagement
p2711 - 005- intermittant

18203- vehicle speed signal
p1795- 004- open circuit- intermittant

Trans works fine briefly then drops into limp, wont shift out of first and seemed to also lose reverse during a test drive.

I have very little experience with autos and generally avoid them, bought this one as it was dirt cheap and very tidy, plan to swap to manual if the dsg is not worth the time and effort. Have read that the mechatronic unit is often the issue though and removal doesn't look to bad. Have found a place locally which reconditions them for $500 which is worth spending to not have to look for and buy all the manual swap bits.

Would anyone with dsg experience be able to comment on whether the mechatronic unit is likely the culprit and worth reconditioning? Or is it likely to be something more serious within the transmission itself?

Thanks in advance!
