Hey- I was doing a quick search and found that your Jetta is having the symptoms mine is currently having. I try to shift in reverse and I hear a grinding sound. It's been worsening. Now the 1st gear is tough to shift to, but not grinding which that one. Did you resolve the issue? If so, how? thanks for your help!!!
