Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
Last night on a long stop and go commute our 99 vw beetle started making a clicking/knocking sound (and i could feel it on the clutch) when shifting. This was also accompanied by a burning smell. (like burning rubber)
I just had an oil change at the dealership a couple weeks ago, and the only repairs they said i needed was new brakes. I put new front and rear brakes on the car 5 days ago.
First check the clutch hydrolic fluid. If it's low or leaking, it may not disengage the clutch completely causing the disk to drag (and smell) The knocking sounds like you're loosing the thowout bearing and/or possibly the disk (there are cushion springs that may have come out of place). Take it to a transmission shop that does free diagnosis. anything other than fluid-related is going to be pricey.
dont forget to rate ... and dont shoot the messenger
