My VW won't go into Reverse, 1st or 5th- is it the clutch or transmission and what is the estimated cost? Also the AC knocks when it runs, but cools just fine- is it the compressor?

it could be the clutch, the clutch cable or the trans. Did this happen all of a sudden? If so, it is most likely not the trans. VWs will strip out the self-adjusting clutch cable when the pressure plate gets hard to release, which causes very hard gear selection or none at all. The A/C noise could be several things. When was the last time you had your system serviced?
