Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
It seems to still have a clutch but when you put it in gear there is no drive
It sounds as if the clutch drive plate has broken , it will give you the impression that you have a clutch pedal , but you won't have any drive

The way to find this out is simple, on the housing of the trans there is a code, a serial number, that will tell you what type of gearbox is required for this model.

The clutch is hydraulically operated.
You may have some broken band springs on the pressure plate; if so, it is going to get much worse as others break too. The throwout bearing could also be disintegrating.
Diagnosing the exact problem will almost surely require pulling the transmission.

Hopefully this works. I tried to upload the factory diagrams to this site. You have to piece them together after you print them and use the legends. Aftermarket diagrams are better but these will work if you're patient.
