2010 Volkswagen Routan - can you rebuild specific gears in a transmission?

Is it possible to repair/rebuild only specific (failing) gears in a transmission, e.g. reverse, 1st, and 4th (according to the error codes)?

Absolutely not practical . There will not be a labor savings and what if the other gears fail a month later . Then you will be back to square one . Just have it completely rebuilt and you will have some kind of warranty.
