Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf
On the top of the gearbox where the links from the gearstick attach to the selector there is a pin that goes down into the gearbox. Wriggle the selector on top of the gearbox to see if there is much play in it. If so the pin may need replacing. It could be cheaper than a gearbox.

Sounds like the syncromesh which i often have problems with, these VW vehicles use the same gearbox as used on the seat and the skoda as well and they can be a bit troublesome where you get a driver who has never driven an older vehicle which had no syncro of first gear at all so the way they are taught to drive whereby they select first gear whilst still moving ,which as all old hands know is not correct and causes premature failure of the syncros .Hence your problem here .not a lot you can do except to strip the gearbox and replace the syncro

SOURCE: golf mk4 tdi major oil leak
If is loosing oil too fast the light will come up,because oil pump won't compesate for oil pressure lost without proper oil level.Anyhow,i'm thinking oil pan has bad gasket or, or possibly could be hole in the pan.It happens when small rock on the road hits pan so hard it will make a hole.Cheap materials like Magnesium sulfate that are commonly used on VW's these days are just not quality.Hope I could help you.

I take it this a normal key not a electronic one, normal key has teeth,get some powered graphite from the parts store,hold open the little key entry door on lock,spray in graphite(plenty),move key in and out of lock until smooth,more graphite,put key in lock, gently turn key side to side,more graphite,work the lock,everything should loosen up, never use liquid lubricants on locks
