1995 Jetta mk3 only 3rd and 4th gear

Asked by Mar 16, 2016 at 08:43 AM about the 1995 Volkswagen Jetta GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can't shift int reverse, 1st, 2nd and 5th gear.
3rd and 4th are much looser than usual.
Maneuvering stick feels like there is no resistance.
I was able to go into reverse after I opened the
hood and shifted the gear in by hand.

Sounds like the linkage or shiftier bushings are worn out.
