    The problems with my gear box do not seem so great. Everything works except that when I shift to 5th gear it returns instead to third. Also when it is in first or third there is a lot of side-ways slop in the shift lever.Possibly just the shift mechanism???

I have a Golf, quite old L reg I bought from a dealer, came from one lady owner from new. Mine gears are always sticking too, apparently the clutch cable is too tight and needs oiling. Could be this is all you need to do to yours. Get it looked at and see what they say.

Manual trans in a 97 golf all forward gears work fine. Shifter will go into reverse slot grinds like its almost there but wont engage

This possibly an issue with a damaged gear synchro or your linkage needs adjusting. This is a video that explains in detail how to adjust your shift linkage and it should cover your model and year of vw. If the problem still persists then you could be looking at the bad gear and will need to have the transmission serviced.
