Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
If it makes a chugging noise in reverse, I have the same issue of popping out of reverse. Have 1 broken tooth from a sloppy shift and hence the gears do not mesh as smoothly as possible. Not a big issue, as I just deal with the chugging and hold it in reverse on a slope.

Hi, I had a similar problem on my '96 Passat and discovered that a plastic cover had come loose from the top of the gearchanger mechanism under the bonnet / hood, and it was fouling the mechanism. While you are in there check to see if there is still some grease left on the working parts. If not, add some.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating just now and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
