Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
You may have a stripped synchro that is making it difficult. Run the car up to speed in second, fairly high RPM, then clutch in and push for third, and just hold the lever against whatever is keeping you out of third gear. See if, as the RPM fall, you are able to slot the lever in. If you're only having trouble with third, then you may well have damage to that gear. If you have trouble in multiple gears, it may just be a fluid issue. You could try draining the old transmission fluid and putting new stuff in and see if it helps.
