3rd gear issue

Hi all I haven driven the treg in a while as my wife nabbed it..
When I drove it the other day itís changing second to 3rd holding the revs ... then it sounds like itís changing again (revs drop)but stays in 3rd on the gear indicator.. is 3rd gear split... took it in to vw they said no error codes but may need adaptations resetting at £360...
Any ideas ..
Many thanks in advance....
Ps I tried a reset but made no difference

How old is your car and how many miles do you have on it? Unless it's a relatively new one with low miles, worn clutch discs would be the most trivial explanation. Which in turn means that the transmission will need to be rebuilt and its clutch discs replaced. A fluid change might fix the issue temporarily, but even if it does, don't count on that lasting long.

Forget the dealer for this one. The official dealer policy on the trans is to remove and replace.

Find the best indie transmission shop in your area. Let them look at it.
