Sounds like your clutch is not releasing completely.
Bleed the clutch hydraulics. There is no adjustment. If that does not solve it then:
1) Bad pressure plate (most likely a broken spring) 2) Bad pilot bearing.
The pilot bearing is often overlooked but can cause hard shifting. It is installed into the center of the flywheel or directly into the crankshaft. The very end of the transmission input shaft goes into it. If it drags it will keep the input spinning even with a perfectly released clutch.
If you have to pull the transmission to work on the clutch do not even think about not replacing the pilot bearing.

Clutch replacement instructions for 1986 VW Jetta


The release bearing goes in the back of the transmission. You'll need to remove the round "VW" cap on the end of the transmission. I would need to see the pilot bushing to know for sure. It could be the starter bushing or the clutch pushrod bushing.

Manual transmission noise


It's most likely your throw-out bearing. It's located very inconveniently on the front shaft of the transmission and the way to remove and replace is to pull the tranny from the car... While you're at it, inspect the clutch and pressure plates and the pilot bushing (located in the center of the flywheel).

Yes you most likely have a bad throw out bearing. If you replace the bearing you would do yourself a favor and replace the clutch and pressure plate while you are there.
