It is probably the clutch slave cylender, leaking fluid, add brake fluid and bleed the system and check for leaks then replace whatever is leaking, sometimes it leaks onto the floor of the car under the pedal.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Jetta VR6. The clutch has very little play

The Jetta III has a cable operated clutch with automatic adjustment. Please ignore the statement about the slave cylinder as this does not apply to your vehicle (VW expert... bah humbug).

Unfortunately, if the clutch operates only with your foot near the floorboard this would suggest that the automatic adjuster has stopped functioning (its a rather simple little thing consisting of two sleeves and a bunch of balls). The only solution would be replacing the cable. Be carefuls of pirate parts, since my experience suggests that pirate clutch cables do not work well at all on these cars.

It is also possible that the link the cable attaches to on the gearbox side has rotated on it's splines. This is however unlikely.

Also ignore the statement about the clutch plate being due for replacement, as a clutch adjusts itself 'upwards' (releases earlier in the travel of the pedal) as the friction lining of the clutch plate wears out.

As far as I can remember, the Jetta has a ball & socket linkage on top of the gearbox. This linkage eventually wear out & the ball will pop out of the socket thus giving you no clutch pedal.
Lift the bonnet & have a look on the right hand side of the engine, you should be able to see what I mean. Push the ball back into the socket & you'll get your clutch pedal back. Chances are the clutch will probably go again unless you replace the worn parts but they're a cheap enough fix.
Hope this helps, Stephen.

The clutch works this way: press the pedal, the pedal pulls a cable, that cable moves a lever with a bearing at its end, that bearing presses on the extremities of the disk spring, that spring deforms and lifts the pressure plate disengaging the clutch plate.
In your case the spring is no longer doing disengaging because either the bearing or the extremities of the disk spring have failed - most likely the latter. You will gonna have to replace the pressure plate assembly.

You might need a new clutch attachment kit... there is a clip that usually goes bad and causes the cable to float.(No tension)

The clutch pedal goes to floor and wont return


Your car uses what is called a hydraulic clutch, the master or the slave hydraulic cylinder is leaking fluid and you have no pressure in the system, this causes the clutch to go to the floor.

so it engages at the end of the push or just when your foot is about to leave the pedal if it is all the way to the end when your foot is down to the floor this could mean that you have a leak in your slave cylinder or the clutch is just about to the end of its life. repair would be replacement.
