Yes, that is the most likely cause. Have someone power brake the engine while you watch the engine movement to determine which one it is.

What would this approximately cost me at my local VW dealer's service centre?

The inspection may be 1/2 hour labor. As far as the repair, that depends what it ends up needing.
