    I'd start by getting a VAG-COM scan of the gearbox ECU done to see what fault codes are showing. That will give you a clue where to start looking.

    Sounds like a dodgy cluster connection or actual lcd if the cars running fine cause if was gearbox I would hazard it would run wrong & you would know straight away, you can take the cluster apart & check connections if you're that technically minded, just take time & care & should be fine, I've done mine many times & not problem touch wood to date

    But Dave's right, give it a scan 1st anyway as nothings impossible these days huh.

    If its intermittant I cant imagine the abs/speed sensor causing the cluster to go funny, I assume you've now cleared this fault or any & driven again & tested to see if that fault comes back at the same time as the cluster issue?

    A logged intermittent fault can cause some funny things to happen, clear it and see if the gear display goes funny again.

    If/when it does check to see if the same fault code comes back.
