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.

I do not think that I will use your service in future.
I had a straight query that required a one line answer.
So all you are pushing is your premium service.

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.

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
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.
