SOURCE: VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears
Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

If this is a manual transmission it sounds as though you have bad synchronizers for the 2nd gear...what I have done in the past is simply do not use that gear whenever possible to avoid unneccesary wear. It is a very costly job to repair this. You are better of driving it carefully as long as you can, make sure anytime you shift the clutch is 100% depressed before you move the shifter as well as while you make the shift into any gear at all. Do not release it until you are 100% into the gear you want as well. Most synchronizers are damaged by not shifting as I have described and/or jamming the shifter into gears when shifting. It is also critical to immediately have your transmission drained and have new gear oil / or transmission fluid added so that you are not cycling around the broken pieces of metal through the transmission. I have driven some cars like this for years and years. If it still works, do not waste you money on a rebuild...simply do what I suggested and drive carefully, avoid second when possible, and change that tranny fluid more often then reccomended,...GOOD LUCK
