Question about Volkswagen Cabriolet
When you have trouble getting into gears, it can be a clutch problem:
CHECKING TOTAL CLUTCH PEDAL TRAVEL Prior to free-play adjustment, check total pedal travel as follows:
PEDAL FREE-PLAY Clutch pedal free-play should be 0.59 in. (15mm) for all Dashers and pre-1979 Rabbits and Sciroccos. On 1979 and later models, there should be 0.85–0.98 in. (21.5–25mm) of free-play. Clutch pedal free-play is the distance the pedal can be depressed before the linkage starts to act on the throwout bearing. Clutch free-play insures that the clutch plate is fully engaged and not slipping. Clutches with no or insufficient free-play often wear out quickly and give marginal power performance.
NOTE: Correct free-play cannot be measured correctly if the floor covering interferes with clutch pedal travel.

It can be two things causing this to happen
(1) Lor fluid in the slave cylinder for the clutch
It can be leaking out or just low
If leaking it needs to be replaced
If the pedal goes to the floor or close to it, it does need fluid
(2) The transmission has what you call a cluster gear. The cluster gear holds all forward and the reverse gear. These gears slides back and forth by a lever which is run by the shift lever. The lever inside the trans has pads which provides a smooth shift. When the pads wear down the lever will not complete the shift.
