Reverse or first gear are both about the same gear ratio, low, to be more specific, and getting into those gears, although you're only having a problem with one,is an indication that the clutch is getting worn and not throwing out enough. This is gennerally caused by the fingers on the pressure plate wearing and warping over the years. I can only assume you've never had to replace the clutch so far correct? Considering the vehicles 14th birthday is just passed it may be time.

check your half-shafts going from the transaxle to the wheel hubs. I suspect that one of them has broken off.

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.

1996 jetta trekk no reverse


Sounds like you'll need a new reverse gear set. Not really an easy fix you have to remove and open the transmission. If you have too much metal in the oil you might need a new transmission seeing it probally already damaged much more like other syncros or bearings inside.
