On these WC Volkswagens, you have to make sure that the little ball-and-socket gear linkages are connected. If one is off, replace it with new, because the old one will probably pop off again.
If there is no problem there and you can select 5th gear, and then only later does it "pop out" of gear, then the spline lock rings have worn where the mating surfaces of each spline tip don't provide a positive "lock" when under power. Some folks think that when a transmission "pops out" when driving, it is the syncronizers. This is never true. (Even Click and Clack get this one wrong continuously.) The syncronizers are responsible for clashing gears during the gear selecting action.
A transmission rebuild is in order if the thing pops out of gear. Good luck.

SOURCE: the gearbox will not select
Without knowing what kind of car , engine, or year or mileage.... try these one at a time and recheck if problem still exists. Bleed clutch if it is a hydraulic unit or adjust clutch pedal if it is a mechanical clutch first. Next check linkage for missing or worn out bushings causing excess play. Next, Change fluid. Everything after this gets expensive.. used tranny or rebuild with a new clutch. Good Luck.
