Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf
I recently bought a second hand VW Golf 4 2002 model which has clocked 120,000kms. After driving it for more than 1,200kms, it started alerting me that the engine must be checked. When a diagnosis was made, it was found that it had an incorrect gear ratio. The gearbox was then dismantled and clutches (3, 4 & 5) were found to have been worn out the reason why it had stopped engaging into these gears.
The question is what could have caused this and can these particular clutches be found?

Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

Unfortunately the problem will need investigating. There must be a problem with the flywheel / clutch assembly or the gearbox itself. The fact that you can move the gear linkage indicates that there is no drive in the gearbox ( ie not turning). The only items that effect this are the clutch / flywheel assembly or the primary shaft in the gearbox.
The gearbox will have to be removed and the above checked.
