Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.

Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that your Thrust bearing on the clutch actuator arm is damaged , it is probably worn and not pushing evenly or that the cable is rusty and in need of repalcement ( hence the squeaking ? ) the cable may even be stretched ..some jettas in this country also had Hydraulic clutches and this would point to a leak ( damaged rubber seals or slave or master cylinder rubbers leak ) or air bubble , or low fluid level not actuating the thrust arm properly
hope this is of help regards Vortah
There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:
Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery.
Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15
seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at tdiclub.com.
Hi,One of the fans is the regular one , the other is an auxiliary one it should come one when you turn the air on . they must be working properly . leave the car runing with the hood open and wait till fan comes on , if it does not comes on you should have it check by a tech...good luck....
