The clutch fluid goes into the clutch fluid reservoir look around in the engine compartment by the brake booster. if you still cannot find, head on over to Auto Zone or Oreillys their counter people will show you where it is.
Most modern clutches have a hydraulic line. Emphasis on most, but this is a moot point for a production vehicle. What it should be is this: the clutch pedal is connected to a reservoir, which accepts DoT #3 brake Fluid (Usually), has a hydraulic line going down to the clutch, and either outside the transmission, or right inside it, is a slave cylinder that activates the actual clutch forks.
There are two 5 speed manual transmissions possible in your vehicle. One of them is controlled by a cable. (there is no fluid) For the other one, you would put the fluid in the clutch reservoir which would be mounted just above the clutch master cylinder in the engine compartment. The clutch master cylinder is directly in front (on the engine side of the firewall) of the clutch pedal.
NOTE: If you are having to add fluid to a hydraulic clutch, you have a leak in the system that needs to be fixed. You should never have to add fluid to the clutch reservoir.
Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that your Thrust bearing on the clutch actuator arm is damaged , it is probably worn and not pushing evenly or that the cable is rusty and in need of repalcement ( hence the squeaking ? ) the cable may even be stretched ..some jettas in this country also had Hydraulic clutches and this would point to a leak ( damaged rubber seals or slave or master cylinder rubbers leak ) or air bubble , or low fluid level not actuating the thrust arm properly
hope this is of help regards Vortah
The clutch and brake master cylinder share a reservoir. Look below the base of the windshield - the "wall" there is the firewall. You should see a large round piece about 10" in diameter with a metal fixture coming forward off of it. On top of that is a reservoir - that is the clutch and brake reservoir.
