Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Clutch remove and replace

I have a 2002 VW Cabrio that is gonna need the clutch replaced soon. In the past I have replaced a clutch on a rear wheel drive vehicle but never a front wheel drive vehicle. Is this something that is so complicated that I will just have to save up the $2000.00 to pay for or can a regular joe do this?

Its just nuts and bolts. if your clutch kit comes w/ a centering tool you are good to go. i am not telling you that it cant take you up to 10 hours or more. transaxles are a pain.

Clutch repair 2005 VW Chico


You need to empty the engine from all fluids, tehn remove air filter and other parts, mount your Golf on a bridge and remove the clutch pressure plate assembly mounted on a side of the engine.

You will need special tools to align and mount the new pressure plate, and you will need to follow a procedure to reinstall the clutch without removing the transaxle.

Replacing the clutch is not an easy task for a beginner, if you do it yourself, get the haynes manual with the complete illustrated procedure.

After replacing you will have to adjust the clutch. See CLUTCH REPLACEMENT PROCEDURES.

Clutch cable on 2002 VW Cabrio


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.)
