2001 Jetta Manual Transmission misses 2nd gear

I have a 2001 VW Jetta and suddenly it will not go into 2nd gear. It slides over to 4th. So I have 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Lost gears

I have the same problem with my 2001 volkswagen cabrio, but I know the solution.
You need a new clutch, or it will continue to slip.
If you cannot afford the clutch. You can "baby" the clutch by easing the clutch out, and eventually it will catch. (It should catch in a second or two.)

In my 1998 VW golf i lost use of 1st. 2nd. and 5th gear. at the 130000km mark. i think its a linkage problem, is this easy to fix/ cheap to fix?shifter just slides around when in 3rd or 4th as if in...

yes. you have to check the plastic/rubber moulding at the linkages under the hood. maybe one of them is missing (fallen out because of wear)
