Question about 1994 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 2001 Jetta VR6. The clutch has very little "play". It engages and disengages in a very small amount of pedal movement down very close to the floor board. Is there any kind of adustment possible on the Jetta VR6? If so, how is it done?
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.

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.
