The shift lever relay is almost certainly out. I just had this happen to me a few weeks ago...be careful driving around in third, you don't want your clutch out too. You can open the hood to manually (by hand) get into reverse by lifting up on the shift lever arm and rotating towards you. I imagine you might be able to find the others, but I had a hard time doing so. At any rate the part should be about 38.00 and $165.00 to have put in at the dealership. I paid like 212.00$...lord knows why this pretty important piece was made of plastic.

Again, watch the clutch.

Inside the transmission case above the pan. You should probably let a transmission mechanic handle this one.

My manual reverse gear on my '96 VW Jetta spits out the reverse and makes a grinding sound?


You have bad sycronizers in the gearbox. They are made of softer metal so they will wear out. They are used to smoothly shifte from one gear to another. How does the clutch feel? Any play in the shifter? Could be the clutch going bad, or play in the shifter also.

02 jetta w/auto train will not change out of low gear


You'll have to get it checked. Its going into limp mode. When this happens you have third gear and reverse. Its to get you somewhere to get it fixed. You can damage the tranny worse driving a lot while its like that
