How would I find this specific TSB? I've searched the web...
Any pointers on how to attain this?
I've read it's possible to pay via a site but all the ones I've seen seem to be a bit wishy-washy.

When found in VW Passat (3B): 5-Speed Automatic Transmission (01V), check Transmission Sealing (see TPL 2009761).
The NAR (North American Region) TSB 01-07-22 or 2011908 should contain similar information about the internal torque converter seal failure.

The only items that seem to relate are complaints that are related, but I don't see anywhere that a TSB would be available.

I've read here and there that the TDI B5.5 was possibly excluded from this specific TSB of power train issue? Which is maybe why I'm not finding it here.

What are you trying to do with this info? It's beyond any warranty and since it was not a recall, it would not be covered. The seal on the locking mechanism fails in 99% of the cases. The more power/torque or the more stress (4Mo), the earlier the failures. The B5 S4 and W8 were the worst. The TDI and 4Mo also had this issue. Even the FWD gas engine had them, just not as low mileage. My V6 4Mo was just around 110-115K when it failed.

My intent is to either diagnose/confirm it's the TC or pass the correct info onto the next shop I bring her to.
Current VW dealership states they never go out, have never seen it, etc. (still waiting to have them either give status report or release car back)
I have a feeling I'll hear "new transmission" when it could be just the TC.

VW dealership is lying. Like I said, it's at least 99% that the TC seal has failed. I've actually never seen or heard of any other reason for the failure.

Brought it to another dealer, they said oh yeah, that's TC.
