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.

The mechanic you went to was wrong, these cable have a lot of tension, sounds to me like you may need a new clutch installed as well as a new cable( they are self adjusting and chances are you wont be able to deadjust your old cable.)

SOURCE: how do I adjust clutch

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

SOURCE: how do i change the clutch cable on a vw jetta

97 VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET/ JETTA CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT

Place a jack under the lever on the gearbox to lift up the arm enough to remove the retaining clip on the engine-end of the clutch cable. Remove the clips and pull the cable loose from the transmission. Then go into the dash and remove the instrument cluster/ gauges to gain access to the pedal end of the cable. You'll need to pop off the plastic clips left and right of the dash to remove the plastic insert in front of the gauge cluster, then two screws and two plugs on the back of the gauges takes care of that step. Push the clutch cable in, and look for the round end of the cable where it's stuck into the top of the pedal. Pop it out with a screwdriver and pull the cable out under the hood. When you insert the new cable, you may need to tap the rounded end in with a hammer and punch or screwdriver to get it to seat back in the pedal assembly.

After disconnecting the cable from the engine compartment remove the lower panel on the driver side. Press clutch peddle to floor then reach around the steering wheel column on the gas peddle side. you will feel a plastic guard. reach under guard you will feel the cable on top of clutch peddle. pull cable up and toward back of car.

I have a 2001 vw cabrio and the clutch got stuck to the floor and won't come back up, it goes into gear but won't move. i heard it could be the clutch cable, where is this located?


At the top of the pedal, there is a hook that a loop on the cable attaches. It then goes out through the firewall, towards the transaxle, in a half inch think rubber sheath. It then bends down to the front of the transaxle, where it goes though an adjuster and connects to a long arm. Loosen the locking nut and then spin the adjuster so that there is less tension. But is there is no tension, it is not the cable. Then it would be the throwout bearing that was binding. It is under the tailpiece cover. Remove the cover, and operate the clutch to see if the bearing is binding.

Can 97 vw cabrio manual pull a 1200lb boler trailer


No. The Cabrio is not made for towing and does not have the proper axle ratio, trans cooler, etc. Ive seen a lot of people these days putting trailer hitches on cars and for larger cars this may work as the motor can compensate. Your Cabrio is 4 cylinder and to pull that load will overwork the motor and cause it to fail much sooner. Not to mention that it will wear out your clutch plate in your manual transmission.

I have a 1998 volkswagen cabrio and I cannot seem to get the clutch cable to fit it is to much play in it and the clutch is to the ground.


If its a cable then it needs adjustment, then you can adjust the cable on the transmission; however if its hydralic, then the clutch slave cylinder needs replacing.
