Question about Cars & Trucks
No notice, just heard a noise, clutch stuck down. Coasted it to parking side then battery died.
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

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.
