No the clutch slave cylinder is located on the outside the bell housing. The easiest way to get at it is to jack the car up, support it on Jack stands and do it from under the vehicle, you will most likely need a clutch pressure bleeder tool to get the air purged out of the clutch hydraulics after the part is installed..
Does it grind the gears in the transmission. If yes, it could be the
clutch/pressure plate. It could be the clutch hydraulic slave cylinder not
working. Check all these thing out before purchasing a new clutch/pressure
plate. When VW is running does if like the vehicle has no get up an on like
maybe the clutch is slipping. GB...stewbison
sorry but you are like my friend john ,i make a clutch last 200,000 kms and two set of brake pads in that time and he ¿?¿? new pads and a new clutch in 8000kms ,and the new slave ,yes it could be damaged inside where you keep resting your foot on the clutch ,the seal has gone ,ok us old hands would just a fit a new rubber but ?? dealer?? I know how you you do it ,holding a vehicle on a hill with the clutch ,sitting at the lights with foot on clutch ,changing gear riding clutch so its sounds like a auto ,excessive revving and riding clutch to pull away ,you should have had my driving instructor ,a clip around the ear for not using the clutch properly ,wack across the wrist for holding gearstick and not steering wheel ,the list continues .Sorry this clutch is your own fault ,
it is the clutch.
theres nothing else you can do but replace the clutch.
as to the kind of clutch i would use original equipment to replace with.
be very carefull with after market stores.
there are better parts you can use but you must look into other clutchs that have been used and decide for yourself which one is best for you.
just a thinker for you.
if it is a 2000 car and this is its first clutch original equip allready proves to go this long.
dont get a kit that will need to be done again in 10000 miles cause a racer says its an awesome kit.
labor on that is expected to be in the 290 350 range.
parts on this is about 360 490
have all four parts replaced
no questions asked if they cant do the job right then find someone else.
dont short yourself on this job cause you will kick yourself later.
bleeding the clutch is basicly the same as bleeding brakes only differance being that the first couple bleeds you may need to reach down and manually make pedal return. other than that same as brakes and the bleeder screw should be right on the slave cylinder.
