P0501 code, rough shifting, no speedometer, Engine and ABS light on

I can't seem to find any clear information on where this VSS is located or if there are two (input, output) for the V6 4matic. The 1.8 looks real easy but I'm assuming this one is in the transmission pan but would like to know for sure before we order what's needed.

Thanks in advance!

Should be on the trans on the driver side in the front axle flange. The one in front of that in the bellhousing is held in with one bolt and is the crank position sensor.

The wiring from the engine harness to the connector should be checked as well. Since it's next to the cat, it doesn't hold up well.
