98 2.0 golf GL 5 speed
Having issues going into first gear When stopped.
Have to slam it into gear it seams.
Or let up on the clutch a bit to get it to go into gear.
Also third gear has the same problem. When driving shifting from second to third.
It does not want to go Into that gear very well.
I hope the clutch might just need to be adjusted.
But if that was the case wouldn't it be like that for ever gear?
Please help!!!

I would start with a transmission fluid change and some new shift linkage bushings. The clutch doesn't adjust.

Same thing. Change your transmission fluid. I had trouble getting into firdt. I changed the fluid and it completely got rid of that problem
