which engine does yours have?
on machines, all, fix noise first. noise means , i'm going to blow up
or die, or fly apart, or cause you damage or the engine collateral damage, (damage can be unlimited)
my wildest guess, I'm blind see and deaf, is the water pump is getting ready to blow up. Self destruction as all do, if ran to infinity.
the fan must turn on at all overheats or it is bad, or its trip sensor is bad or its own relay is bad or the wires, end to end this path are bad.
some cars have 3 fans, 2 on rad rear and 1 on AC,
my comment is RAD FAN(s).
asking for help to blind people on the net./ why not get hands on help, you in YUKON? ask a neighbor, to look or friend or son or some with machine experience,
doing it wrong can be very expensive. why risk that.?
or get hurt.
see here for vast overheating reasons, and works for all cars.
(no electric pumps)
on newer cars the PCM controls all fans, under ALL conditions via RELAYs.
the varies by year, model , country and engine options.
what country is this car.?
Cabriolet (missing let?)
a gen 3:!
Third generation (A3/Typ 1H, 1993-2001)
the Mk3 Golf Cabrio received a Mk4-style facelift for the late 1999 model and was continued until 2002.
here is the list, what engine?

SOURCE: overheating problem
looks like you have done everything but the problem with your car is that the cylider head gasket has gone have a look at the dipstick or remove the oil filler cap if it looks like mayo then 100% head gasket has failed you said no water on the floor so it must have gone into engine only way this can happen is head gasket failing, if you have put lot of water in to the cooling system then your sump will be full of oil water mix.

there is a strong possibility that the impellers on the waterpump are broken!!!!. they are made out of plastic and are notorious for breaking. ck this first have seen it countless times. make sure new waterpump has metal impellers.

Run the engine and look at the header tank , is there lots of air bubbles coming back out of the water if is then the head gasket may have split and that is down to either a can of Radweld or a strip down repair
If the radiator is not uniformly hot them I would go for that as your problem
Normal operation is that the engine starts the thermostat is closed , engine block heats up and opens water starts to circulate around the block
So to check that you need to fill the radiator with cold water run it for a few minutes check the bottom hose it should be cold
The stat opens and the bottom hose should get hot as the water from the block is pumped into the radiator for cooling.
The radiator should get hot all over and the cooling fan should kick in when the sensor hits the over limit stop.
If that does not happen then get someone to remove the stat altogether (It is only there to get the engine block warm quickly in cold regions )
In which case the bottom hose should go from cold to warm to hot

Sounds to me like a very common problem has occured to your neighbor. If this is a SOHC engine, one of the valve seats in the number 4 cylinder has fallen out. I'm sure it has damaged the head and the piston. Stop trying to run it or you might blow a hole in the cylinder wall or break a rod or both.
