    Golf Mk4 Gear change

    Just wondering if anyone on here has had any issues with selecting first gear. It feels like something has worn out like a bush or worn cable. The gear stick is also how should i say "like a cock in a sock". The car is a 1.9 tdi 90bhp 5 speed and had done a healthy 170k. Any help much appreciated.
