Look for an adjustable cable to put in your Jetta. They are available through the aftermarket.

SOURCE: 95 VW Golf, Clutch cable tricks

look above the clutch cable the is a rubber boot, abot 8-10 inches long. If u notice on either end of this boot are rubber prongs, or ears or whatever u wanna call em. Compress the cable by hand trying to bring these rubber ears as close to each other as possible. Once this is done, use a wire and wrap the wire around both ears as this will prevent the cable from decompressing. Might have to compress it by the pedal itself, but should be able to do it by hand. When u wrap the wire, do it in a figure 8 fashion because u have to get all 4 rubber ears otherwise the cable will decompress on one side.

My 87 VW Jetta is stuck in second gear and shifter just flops around. Any Adjusting feedback greatly apreciated..Dean


Front wheel drive cars with transaxles use a shifter cable that runs from the shifter to the transaxle. Have a look under the hood and see if the cable broke loose from the linkages, or from the shifter itself.
Best thing to do in this situation is to have a mechanic look at it. There's really nothing that anyone here can fix without having a look at the car and troubleshooting it.
