Clutch stopped working

I have a '99 Volkswagen Cabrio 5-speed and the clutch has stopped working. It either goes all the way to the floor and stays there or it stays all the way up. What could be causing this problem?

Think the thrust bearing has gone or the spring on the pressure plate has broke ,either way its a new clutch unless you have broken clutch cable

I need to get the clutch cable off a 1997 vw cabrio.How do i get the cable off the clutch pedal


After disconnecting the cable from the engine compartment remove the lower panel on the driver side. Press clutch peddle to floor then reach around the steering wheel column on the gas peddle side. you will feel a plastic guard. reach under guard you will feel the cable on top of clutch peddle. pull cable up and toward back of car.

Clutch go's all the way to floor with no resistents can not shift gears engine won't stay on. 1987 5 speed pickup truck


Sounds like the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out of a line or the slave cylinder is leaking, or the master clutch cylinder has an internal leak that doesn't actuate the clutch effectively when the pedal is pushed to the floor.

I have a 2001 vw cabrio and the clutch got stuck to the floor and won't come back up, it goes into gear but won't move. i heard it could be the clutch cable, where is this located?


At the top of the pedal, there is a hook that a loop on the cable attaches. It then goes out through the firewall, towards the transaxle, in a half inch think rubber sheath. It then bends down to the front of the transaxle, where it goes though an adjuster and connects to a long arm. Loosen the locking nut and then spin the adjuster so that there is less tension. But is there is no tension, it is not the cable. Then it would be the throwout bearing that was binding. It is under the tailpiece cover. Remove the cover, and operate the clutch to see if the bearing is binding.

2000 Volkswagen Cabrio needs to be accelerated really hard before it goes reverse, and even then it goes very slowly. It drives well. I have checked the transmission fluid and it is good.


Best approach is to drain the tranny fluid and refill with new type F fluid. This fluid is great for restoring poor performance due to sticking clutch bands and valves.
