Inside the 5th gear housing on the end transmission, there is a level that actuates the pushrod for the clutch, i've seen these brake a number of times. The transmission will not need to be removed to fix this problem. In the photo below, it's part number 20. While this is not the exact transmission from your vehicle, the layout of the parts are the same.

How do I bleed a clutch on a 1997 Jetta 2.0

There could be a YouTube video showing how to do this. If the clutch cylinder is accessible from the outside of the transmission, there will be a bleeder valve. It may have been designed as a tube leading to the outside. Put a piece of clear plastic tubing over the bleeder valve nipple and make sure the master clutch cylinder is filled with recommended brake fluid. Two people will be necessary to push the clutch pedal slowiy to the floor with the valve opened a quarter turn. Watch the fluid being forced out through the tubing. It should come out without any entrapped bubbles. Close the bleeder valve before releasing the pedal so that fluid is drawn into the line. Repeated these two steps until no bubbles are seen in the tubing and at each cycle, make sure the level of brake fluid in the master valve stays full.

My 1998 vw jetta clutch is having a problem. there was no signs of clutch slipping. clutch pedal went to floor, now there is no going and no sign of a broken cable.

You might need a new clutch attachment kit... there is a clip that usually goes bad and causes the cable to float.(No tension)

Clutch pedal remains on the floor

You need a new clutch. Or a new slave cylinder. The clutch is on the floor because you have no pressure in your hydraulic (brake fluid) system. Could be due to a leak somewhere. You need a mechanic...

The clutch pedal goes to floor and wont return

Your car uses what is called a hydraulic clutch, the master or the slave hydraulic cylinder is leaking fluid and you have no pressure in the system, this causes the clutch to go to the floor.

I have a 2001 Jetta VR6. The clutch has very little play

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.

When I was at a stop light, I went to put it in first gear when the light turned green. When I did, the clutch pedal just went straight to the floor, and stayed there. It doesn't seem to be the clutch...

The thrust bearing could have collapsed or the Fingers on the clutch plate have gone.

If when you press down on the clutch the cable moves the arm on the clutch housing then it is either of the above
