Sounds like you'll need a new reverse gear set. Not really an easy fix you have to remove and open the transmission. If you have too much metal in the oil you might need a new transmission seeing it probally already damaged much more like other syncros or bearings inside.

I have 1996 vw jetta 2.0 and my reverse keep slipping out and will not stay in reverse..would I have to replace my whole transmission? by the way its stick shift


usually a sign that that gear set is starting to go out or has already, standard transmissions CAN be rebuilt, but it's usually easier to have a used working one put in place instead. good luck to you. does it pop out of gear?

When i put my 95 jetta in reverse it grinds and pops out of gear


Reverse or first gear are both about the same gear ratio, low, to be more specific, and getting into those gears, although you're only having a problem with one,is an indication that the clutch is getting worn and not throwing out enough. This is gennerally caused by the fingers on the pressure plate wearing and warping over the years. I can only assume you've never had to replace the clutch so far correct? Considering the vehicles 14th birthday is just passed it may be time.

My manual reverse gear on my '96 VW Jetta spits out the reverse and makes a grinding sound?


You have bad sycronizers in the gearbox. They are made of softer metal so they will wear out. They are used to smoothly shifte from one gear to another. How does the clutch feel? Any play in the shifter? Could be the clutch going bad, or play in the shifter also.

Grinding sound when reversing (manual transmission)


well if it grinds when trying to get into reverse the clutch is not disegageing all the way. the cable could be worn out,the release bearing could be worn out or the push rod cold be worn out or in my case it was all 3 but mine has 250000 on it. Worst case if all of that is ok then the pushrod bushing is worn and you need to drop the tranny for that so you might as wee just replace the cluth too.
But if it grinds while IN reverse then the reverse
gears are shot. Hows the gear lube?

If there is a grinding noise then you have a rev. gear, sounds like a clutch issue to me.
