SOURCE: 95 VW Golf, Clutch cable tricks

look above the clutch cable the is a rubber boot, abot 8-10 inches long. If u notice on either end of this boot are rubber prongs, or ears or whatever u wanna call em. Compress the cable by hand trying to bring these rubber ears as close to each other as possible. Once this is done, use a wire and wrap the wire around both ears as this will prevent the cable from decompressing. Might have to compress it by the pedal itself, but should be able to do it by hand. When u wrap the wire, do it in a figure 8 fashion because u have to get all 4 rubber ears otherwise the cable will decompress on one side.

So all you are pushing is your premium service.
Nice try.

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.

SOURCE: clutch on my golf gti turbo

it is the clutch.
theres nothing else you can do but replace the clutch.
as to the kind of clutch i would use original equipment to replace with.
be very carefull with after market stores.
there are better parts you can use but you must look into other clutchs that have been used and decide for yourself which one is best for you.

just a thinker for you.
if it is a 2000 car and this is its first clutch original equip allready proves to go this long.
dont get a kit that will need to be done again in 10000 miles cause a racer says its an awesome kit.

labor on that is expected to be in the 290 350 range.
parts on this is about 360 490

pilot bearing
throwout bearing
clutch plate
clutch disc
have all four parts replaced
no questions asked if they cant do the job right then find someone else.
dont short yourself on this job cause you will kick yourself later.

How do I adjust clutch cable on 1986 vw gti?


The cable attaches to the front top of the gearbox. You will see a large white or black plastic disc with ridges on the back. This is the adjuster. There is a locking nut above the adjusting disc that you have to unscrew a bit. Then turn the adjusting disc clockwise to get the cable tighter. Because of the large amount of non-original cables(and therefore sometimes incorrect length), if you get to the end of adjustment and still do not have sufficient clutch release, You can use disc washers inserted between the guide sleeve and adjusting disc. You should only do this with a new cable if you cannot find the correct length cable. If an old cable does not respond to adjustment it is stretched and needs replacing. You can however still get a few extra miles out of the cable by using the washers. It's your budget, so you have the final say.
1- Lock nut
2- Adjusting disc
3-Washers(Definately not standard)
4- Guide sleeve
5- Gearbox

How to fit clutch cable to golf gti 2.0i 1997 engine code agg


Under the dash on top of the clutch pedal there will be a retainer clip holding the cable, remove that then a similar clip on the gearbox, you will have to undo a cable holder bracket to remove the cable, the cable will also have a gromet in the firewall that needs to be positioned correctly on assembly, adjust the cable accordingly with the adjuster on the gearbox once installed, good luck drive safely
