Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
I had the same problem on my 85 golf i do believe it was a damaged reverse gear. It was like that when i baught it, didn't notice right away cause i didn't have to reverse it. Not 100% sure what would cause damage to the reverse gear, but i hope that helps
Is it manual or automatic. Spits out. Being an 85 golf, There are parts on vehicles that need adjusting over time. There are parts on these adjustable parts that need maintenance and after say 24 years lol, replacing. Shift linkage adjustment and shift bushings are the most common cause of reverse (spitting out). Purchased online for 8.00 U.S. or get the nice neoprene if you plan on keeping the golf. Shift linkage adjustment is easy if you are a professional. If your not, plan to be on your back and making alot of trips back and forth if you don't know what your doing. Don't let some crook talk you into serious money. Adjust your linkage , but first replace the shift bushings. The little things are what tell the big things what to do.
