My new to me and to the state of VA, 2003 Passat W8 MT BoB

After much thinking and without personally inspecting the car, I took the risk and purchased this rare find 2003 W8 Passat MT Black on Black straight from Arizona.

The car has some normal wear and tear and issues here and there but overall I am very pleased with the car, I already registered it in VA, only needs the safety inspection and will take care of that after I replace the breaks.
Luckily there are no issues with the engine, it purrs like a tiger, I just had to replace the serpentine belt for now, but I am saving for an engine crane, I know I will need it sooner or later :)

Done to the car so far:
Oil and oil filter Change
Serpentine belt
Replaced Airbag Module
Replaced front grill with W8 Emblem.

Needs to be done
Lower Control arms
Front engine mount (snob)
Center display in instrument cluster (fading)
Fuel Filter replacement and Aux Fuel pump issue.

These are Vagcom scan results, any insight will be greatly appreciated:

The one that I would like to tackle first is the Fuel DTS code 00439 - Fuel Supply Sensor 3 (G237)
29-00 - Short to Ground
When I filled the tank I noticed that the fuel gauge did not go all the way to the top, it leads me to believe that the pump for the secondary tank is not working, do you think I will need to replace it or do you think is module related?

Does anybody know a good company to fix the center display in the instrument cluster, mine is fading and hard to see anything.

Thanks in advance.
