Reach deep down in your pocket for a $20 bill,  use it to buy a haynes manual from your local parts store, amazon or  The time and blood you save may be your own;~).  If this manual doesn't save you more than $20 of your time ... then you don't value your time much.  All diagrams for everything, clutch, tranny, full motor rebuild, suspension, wiring .. you name it.
good luck,

please rate all solutions

    FYI The later VW's have more stuff available on the net, I ound a great 12 page guide for doing 2005 TDI-PD Timing Belt,  it was better than the $100 factory bentley publishers manual !  They didn't have a Haynes yet for my car when I did the TB.

    BTW I put a clutch in my wife 98 passat, probably a similar job.  I got a HD but cheap chinese jack from Autozone and an adapter plate (that can replace the standard jack cup) that has arms and straps and you can secure a tranny or motor to it ..  handy if you don't have a proper garage car lift.  About $100 for both, I used to 98 Passat Clutch and 2005 Jetta TDI timing belt.  I mention in case you haven't got another plan.

    Did you like the Haynes?

I cant get my car in first gear.

If you are lucky the clutch may just need new fluid and a good bleed (Hydraulic clutch if you did not know), after that, the seals in the master cylinder may be shott, (look for 'wet' around m/c dust cover), failing these things it may be a new clutch im afraid.

i had the same problem. After checking the window motor was not the problem i then checked the wiring harnes in the door. I beeped out all the connectors to make sure there were no broken wires and cleaned up all the contacts. The main connector looked quite corroded. I sprayed all the connectors with rust check and reassembled. The window is working fine now
