You should not have to force it into gear. If your clutch is releasing you should be able to slide it into gear. Here are a couple of possibilities. Your clutch is either hydraulic or cable actuated. Your master or slave cylinder is not extending fully to release the pressure plate from the clutch disk. If you have a cable actuated clutch your cable may have stretched so much that it no longer releases quite enough. I really doubt you need a new clutch if it grabs and holds well after it is in gear. Look into whatever system your vehicle uses to release the clutch be it cable or hydraulic. Wish I could help more , but I can't see it to diagnose it.

My mk4 golf cuts out when clutch is applied,not every time but enough times to make me concerned and frustrated.

oh dear, you drive with your foot on the cluch then? or hold the cluch down at the lights insted of knocking it out of gear? never hold down the cluch for more that 30 seconds at a time,,,,,naughty naughty! this is just one of the prices you pay for that,
its you cluch release bearing, its seised up on you, cluch riding dose that! its only a little bearing!!!!!
the fix is a new cluch bearing, but what it costs to take the gear box out to replase the bearing it would be cheeper in the long run to have a compleat new cluch fitted, and then lurn not to ride the new cluch as much,,,,and all this just to pull away a fuw seconds faster??? this is a £350-£500 job now
how frustrated do you feel now?????

Check the Slave cylinder operation. If the gears engauge with the car off it is a clutch problem not the trans.

Cluch won't dis engage

How long have you had your car? How many miles on it?

Maybe the clutch plate gone, if the plate is not thick enough, you won't change the gear.
