Re: how do i tighten a clutch cable on a 97 jetta gls
There's a star wheel on the cable at the firewall. You can adjust it there. You can put tension on the clutch fork, that way you can see which way to turn the wheel to tighten it up. Hope this is helpful Phil

Undo both bolts and make sure the statermotor is fully home before fitting the bolts. Dont tighten the bolts fully, fit them by hand first then tighten up.
These are steel bolts winding into alloy housing so dont over tighten.
Make sure the wiring loom is clear too.
Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John
this really depends on what car you have, if it has a cable type clutch you need to make sure there is a little free-play in the pedal, tighten the cable just enough to be able to shift easily with the engine running without removing the free-play if the clutch slips loosen the cable. if it slips but you can't shift easily you need a new clutch. If you have a hydraulic clutch and you can't shift bleed it, if it slips you need a new clutch. here again you need to have freeplay in the pedal for the master cylinder to work properly. hope this helps
on the bell housing you will see a yoke with a cable attached to it ,it has a 3"long bolt attatched to the end of the cable and 2 nuts,these are the adjusting nuts,leave at least 2"travel on the pedal before you feel any real pressure on your hand.when you push down.the bell housing is the large bulge inbetween the engine and the gearbox right in front of you when you lean into the engine bay.if you find you cannot engage gears smoothly,this may help BUT if slipping you will have to replace clutch components.
