SOURCE: 95 VW Golf, Clutch cable tricks

look above the clutch cable the is a rubber boot, abot 8-10 inches long. If u notice on either end of this boot are rubber prongs, or ears or whatever u wanna call em. Compress the cable by hand trying to bring these rubber ears as close to each other as possible. Once this is done, use a wire and wrap the wire around both ears as this will prevent the cable from decompressing. Might have to compress it by the pedal itself, but should be able to do it by hand. When u wrap the wire, do it in a figure 8 fashion because u have to get all 4 rubber ears otherwise the cable will decompress on one side.

SOURCE: 1991 vw golf gti- RPM stop working!

judging by the amount of km it has done i would say the rpm drive is faulty, this measures the amount of rotation in the camshaft and shows the "revolutions per minute". when this goes faulty it stops the read out on the dial, so you want to be looking for a device that measures the speed that the engine is turning, if you have, replace it and it should solve the problem

SOURCE: how to change clutch on vw golf year 2000

If you're asking this question, I two assumptions 1) that it's your first time because clutch replacement procedure is generally the same as any make of vehicle. It requires allen and 12pt bits (spline drive) so you can remove the starter, bell housing, CV joints and specially a 30mm x 6pt x 1/2 deep socket. A 1/2" drive torque wrench is needed as well to torque everything down to spec. If this doesn't deter you from doing it yourself then a public library usually has Clymers or Chilton service manuals for most vehicles available for reference. So my other assumption is you don't have a manual and need free information. Good luck and always let Safety be a priority.

My 92 VW Cabriolet is having a problem with the clutch pedal. My original thought was the clutch went, yet the pedal is still not working after installing the new clutch kit. What is the problem here and...


it is kind of beyond belief that someone could replace the entire clutch and yet be unaware that the actuator, be it hydraulic or mechanical, is not working. That is like saying you replaced the head but did not notice there were no pistons in the engine. The shifter fork sticks out the side of the bell housing and connects to the actuator.

You need to take it back to the person who did the clutch and inquire as to how he managed to miss the totally obvious. Having to get the vehicle towed back to your home after getting a new clutch installed would be a clue that something was awry with the clutch install.

Have problems with changeing clutch cable vw golf 3. Can not remove old cable from pedal.


Disconnect the cable at the transmission side first then you can remove the cable stay at the pedal assembly. If you have an automatic clutch tensioner, step on the pedal first then attach two securing wings on the cable boot housing to lock up the cable from the lever.

Changing the clutch cable


There are 2 types of cable used. Auto Adjust...and Manual Adjust. Either are easy to fit. Remove tray over foot=pedals will allow you to access one end of the cable. Here the cable simply hooks over the pedal linkage. Remove the outside plastic panel in front of windscreen to allow the cable to be installed. If the cable is the Manual Adjust type, loosen off the adjuster nuts at the clutch lever on the front / side of the gearbox and pull out cable.
If car is fitted with Auto Adjust cable...A Plastic Retainer Strap will be installed on the cable at the gearbox end. This retainer should be latched into place before removal. If the cable is broken at present you need not bother with this retainer. A new cable comes with this retainer already fitted. Its simply a matter of fitting the cable in place at both ends and then releasing this retainer. Do NOT release this until the cable is fully installed at BOTH ends

Clutch pedal has no pressure


1991 Golf has a cable clutch, the cable pulls up on the arm you see outside the transmission. the arm rotates a shaft in the very tail end of the transmission which actuates a rocker arm which pushes a pushrod that travels up the center of the transmission and operates the clutch.

very complicated right?

anyway, the rocker arm in the tail end of the transmission is famous for cracking along its' splines and jumping over the shaft.
go to the local vw dealer or jobber who specializes in german parts.
you need the rocker arm and the cover plate for the end of the tranny.

remove the clutch cable from the arm, remove the end plate and you'll see the rocker arm, unclip the shaft, remove old rocker arm, and replace. should cost a maximum of $30-40(can)

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.
