Easy model to do but i have worked 13 hrs today then an hour on here and my back aches sat here ,if you remove the drive shafts then undo the bell housing bolts and gearchange then you can slide the gearbox back a bit so you have a gap of an inch and bit at the front and using a 9mm ring to undo the bolts one at a time its possible to drop the clutch ,then put the new one in and the bolts in loose you locate the clutch then tighten the clutch bolts through the timing mark hole as i remember rightly

Clutch replacement instructions for 1986 VW Jetta

The release bearing goes in the back of the transmission. You'll need to remove the round "VW" cap on the end of the transmission. I would need to see the pilot bushing to know for sure. It could be the starter bushing or the clutch pushrod bushing.

For 96 VW jetta 2.0L, my clutch is slipping, is it possible to tighten it up ?? before replacing the whole clutch?

Make sure there is some free play (about 3/4 ") at the pedal pad. If ok, then it's clutch time!

1995 vw jetta gl air conditioner fuse 2.0 l

You may not be full of refrigerant... There is a low pressure switch that prevents the AC from actuating the clutch, and the reason is: IF there is not enough refrigerant, you will not be able to move oil through the system and you will have major no engauge...

Get the system checked, most likely there is a leak somewhere..
