Question about 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio
I just purchased a 2002 VW Cabrio and while driving back from Philly to Wichita I noticed that the clutch didnt engage until the pedal was almost all the way up. I took it to a mechanic in Wichita who said that the clutch cable has entirely too much tention on it and if he replaced the clutch it wouldnt last long under this stress. The clutch cable in one that adjusts automatically. I got under the car with the mechanic and pressed up from below on the bottom of the clutch cable and it must have taked 50 pounds of pressure to make the clutch cable go up. Any suggestions on what is putting that much strain on the clutch cable?
The mechanic you went to was wrong, these cable have a lot of tension, sounds to me like you may need a new clutch installed as well as a new cable( they are self adjusting and chances are you wont be able to deadjust your old cable.)
