Sounds like the engine/gearbox could have seized, can you turn the engine over with a socket on the crankshaft ?take plugs out , easier without compression !, if turns then i'd be looking at the clutch/gearbox removal

The clutch is hydraulically operated.
You may have some broken band springs on the pressure plate; if so, it is going to get much worse as others break too. The throwout bearing could also be disintegrating.
Diagnosing the exact problem will almost surely require pulling the transmission.

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

SOURCE: AC not cooling for 97 Passat TDI

First recharging throug the high side is extremely dangerous and is discouraged by most HVAC mechanics.
High side pressure should read approx. 5x the low side. Low side pressure should read in the 40-45psi range unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer. Guess here is the system is overcharged is you're getting 70psi on the low side. Overcharging will damage the compressor and will underperform. Below is a link to a great source of information on AC.
Best of luck with your problem.

Loud noise from the drivers side engine bay area or behind pedals

Sometimes the A/C unit will make noise 2 different ways. The compressor pump requires oil to lube itself. An oil charge with the proper weight (there is a difference just like in motor oil) will silence the noise. Second, the compressor clutch can get a build up of rust. When the clutch is freewheeling, the rust will make noise until it is knocked off. Since the clutch is magnetic, a little oil wiped between the freewheeling edge of the clutch will silence it, and not affect clutch performance. Once you start getting a rust "bloom" it will require periodic oiling. Though both would be affected by engine RPM.

I would also look at the engine cooling fan. Its' speed is independent of the car motor, and will operate while driving or parked. It could easily produce a rotary noise. Also your heater/AC interior fan could be making noise.

I hope my solution helps.
