SOURCE: clutch replacement instructions for 1986 VW Jetta

The release bearing goes in the back of the transmission. You'll need to remove the round "VW" cap on the end of the transmission. I would need to see the pilot bushing to know for sure. It could be the starter bushing or the clutch pushrod bushing.

SOURCE: missing thermostatic air cleaner

I believe it does. It should be in the bottom part of the air cleaner box. There should be a vacuum hose connected to it from the throttle body boot.

When im driving the car, i accelerate and the car gets no power yet the rpms are going sky high. just had to replace the fly wheel and other clutch parts. it is an 86 vw jetta, manual trans.


86 wow its a classic ,anyway whatever you have done the clutch isnt dis-engaging and its so old i cannot remember if its a hydraulic or a cable clutch ,seem to think its a SELF ADJUSTING cable on this car but i could be wrong but if it is then you will need reset the clutch cable which means taking it off putting it in a vice then ?? sorry iam old now and my memory ? i think i used to hold the main part then sort of twist or turn and push the cable in then hold it in whilst using a piece of bailing wire to hold it in place so it doesnt spring open then refit the cable and once its on then release the wire .But dont quote me for this model as its been a long time

Hello - I just bought a 2004 Jetta - day one - mil light came on. Car runs fine. What could it be? 2 mechanics checked the car over before I bought it and carfax said it was one owner no problems.


Have VW check it out. I had just got my 04 GLI with 70,000 miles when the light came on. The thermostat triggered the light and so I had the whole timing belt, thermostat, and water pump service. Worth the money.

Golf sometimes no power to starter motor


I would check the ignition switch. You can unplug the small wire at the starter, with a test light check and see if power is at the plug when you turn the key to the start postion. If there is power there, you may have a bad starter solenoid. I've had to replace a few on my VW, (86 Scirocco, 91 Jetta GLI)
