Comments about BWD/Intermotor Sensor - Vehicle Speed:
Good fit, working replacement. Kept me from surrendering car (VW Jetta) to a mechanic who'll probably do more damage than good and cost a lot of money doing (or not doing) it. It would be nice to have accurate location or picture of the location of the part - it was hart to find and isolate from other similar parts.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The vehicle speed sensor on your 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GL should be located on the top of the transmission. This BWD/Intermotor Sensor - Vehicle Speed - part# S8246 is an exact fit for your vehicle.

Throwing OBDII code PO0715 (Input speed sensor malfunction), transmission will not shift, no gear indication on dashboard. Is this the sensor I need? Is this located near/under the battery tray on the transmission on a 2002 VW Cabrio 2.0L engine?
Yes, it may be vehicle speed sensor. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

Can you give me the location and directions for replacing this part? I read another person's directions that had to do with a VW Jetta, but my car is a 2001 VW cabrio. Do I still have to drop the tranny a few inches in order to replace this?
