At the botton of the gearstick is a small clip that holds your gear stick in place, I had it on my V dub. The stick will slip into reverse but work 1st. It's a small job to replace, remove all the inside gear cowling, and lift out. You will see the clip broken, just take the circlip off, lift off the broken clip, replace with a new one, it's easy. Just Remember that when you put your car in 1st, (reverse) your reversing lights come on, giving the car behind you a bit of a shock, if you are sat at lights etc! Have fun, dave

I have a golf gt tdi and lately i am having problems getting it into reverse and first gear. It usually happens when the vehicle has been stood such as overnight


I would check the gearbox oil level. Also try lubricating the linkages. If you have high miles, it maybe the clutch is starting to go out. Do you have a lot of pedal when releasing the clutch?

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.

!997 Jetta manual transmission won't shift into gears.


This sounds like it could be a few things. Check the transmission/engine mounts. The linkage could also be a problem by being worn or by the mounts being bad. Could be a bad pressure plate/clutch. These transmissions usually give you some warning first by making noise. Expecially in reverse if they are on there way out. Does it go into any gear now?
