Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
97 VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET/ JETTA CLUTCH CABLE REPLACEMENT
Place a jack under the lever on the gearbox to lift up the arm enough to remove the retaining clip on the engine-end of the clutch cable. Remove the clips and pull the cable loose from the transmission. Then go into the dash and remove the instrument cluster/ gauges to gain access to the pedal end of the cable. You'll need to pop off the plastic clips left and right of the dash to remove the plastic insert in front of the gauge cluster, then two screws and two plugs on the back of the gauges takes care of that step. Push the clutch cable in, and look for the round end of the cable where it's stuck into the top of the pedal. Pop it out with a screwdriver and pull the cable out under the hood. When you insert the new cable, you may need to tap the rounded end in with a hammer and punch or screwdriver to get it to seat back in the pedal assembly.

it could be the ground wire (black) going to the starter. try putting a jumper cable straight from the black negative side of battery to the exposed metal part on the starter while a friend turns key. if it turns over then its the ground wire. if not its probably the starter solenoid or even the starter motor. solenoid would be cheaper than motor and more likely to be problem.

you adjust the clutch like this, using two spanners to undo the two nuts at the gearbox end of the cable,then tighten up the larger of the two nuts to tension the cable,now inside the car push the pedal down,and adjust the cable so that you have about an inch of play from the rest position to actual contact of the arm movement,then lock up both nuts to secure,start the car and check the operation,there should be no need to readjust if correct.
