1-disconnect battery. 2- remove all lower dash plastic panels. 3-
disconnect all plugs on steering coloumn. 4- remove shear bolts on
steering coloumn, easy with a long 8" sharp chisel (get 2 x new shear
bolts £0.50p each). 5-loosen & remove bolt at steering rack in
drivers footwell, mark position of spline before removing this makes it
east to refit (tipex). 6- pull steering coloumn out towards you &
it will slide off the bush quite easy. 7- loosen clutch cable
adjustment & remove cable nipple at pedal. 8-remove clutch pedal.
9- pull brake pedal out of plastic insert, this will break there is no
way to remove this without breaking the plastic clip. get a new brake
pedal clip insert for a Mk 3 golf £4 its the same (dont let VW sell you
a new pedal) 10- remove 5 x nuts holding pedal box to bulkhead/brake
servo. 11- cut 2 x cable ties holding throttle wiring & disconnetc
plug above heater on drivers side. 12- push/pull brake servo slightly
out of bulk head. 13- remove pedal box.
Cause of the problem- The clutch bracket is only held to the pedal box with 2 x spot welds & a 10mm tack on the top corner.
Repair- Fully Weld the clutch bracket to the pedal box. Great repair.
refitting reverse of above.
Duration around 6/8 hours Less if you get the spare parts before you start.
I wasted time trying to remove the brake pedal without breaking the clip impossible to do even with theVW tool. £4 on a new clip is well worth it.

Sounds like a minor bearing fault, can be fixed quite simply although you would need to take the box out and send it to a transmission specialist to replace the faulty bearing(s)
