Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
The gear selector has worn out. cannot remember if it is plastic or metal on a 95. you need to take the rubber cover off the gear stick and you will see the plate in there thats what will need replacing.

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.

SOURCE: alarm system in my 95 vw golf
if i remember right these golfs were immobilised by a transponder which is built into your original key and the circuits that are immobillised are the starter motor wire which can be bypassed and the other one is to the fuel pump relay but the loom goes straight to underneath the back seat , so you need to get a live to the fuel pump by some means !
your best bet is dropping the drivers side fuse box which is held by about four screws and then there is a plastic latch at each side that you just flick up by hand and then the fuse box can be lifted off its brackets in an upwards motion !
just pray that its not a factory immobilliser which is fitted because you will see where the immobilliser cuts are all made at the back of the fusebox which will make it so much easier to solder the original coloured wires together to get the car started .
and yep i have worked on this car many times and ripped my hair out over the original transpoder immobilliser bypass lol !

You will need to check the gear linkage hasits free movement and the gearbox mounting is secure. This happen on a Polo recently and the securing bolt to the gearbox mounting had fallen off leaving the gearbox hanging. I hope this helps you.
