Default Manual Shifter not engaging gears

Greetings fellow VW lovers, let me start by outlining my car:

2003 Jetta GL 2.0 L4 Sedan (non-turbo) 5 Speed Manual

Ok with that out of the way my issue is rather difficult to explain but I'll try my best. I was driving to work and noticed that shifting from 1st to 2nd was very difficult and felt like the shifter was rubbing against something rough. When I went to shift to 3rd, the shifter flopped to one side. Currently I can not shift out of second and the shifter moves about (along the correct shifting path) freely.

I'm looking for suggestions as to what the culprit might be.

Thanks in advance.

Soooooo... I figured out after taking apart everything I could without getting under the car and dropping the transmission and everything that the front to back cable came off the shift arm. More accurately, the bushing holding the cable to the arm disintegrated and the cable fell off. So now I'm looking for a way to get the new bushing and put it on without dropping the exhaust and shiftbox because not only do I not have the tools for that I don't have experience to fix any of that should something go horribly wrong.
