I am not familiar with Volkswagon products, per se, but the basics are the same. Is your clutch hydraulic? They tend to go without notice. If it is not - there may be adjustment in your system. If there is no smell and you are still able to drive ok - I am not sure what the problem is. If in fact you do need a new "kit" - do not replace just part of the kit since the labour cost of putting in a part latter would outway any advantage at this point. I did this as a teen in one of my vehicles by not replacing the throw out bearing and it failed long before the new clutch was even close to being worn out.

Hi It sounds like during installation one of 3 things could have happened. Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
1) The splines got messed up stabbing the transmission, or
2) the plate got bent itself or
3) the plate is in backwards
Also If you do have leaking on your master cylinder then that will be your problem obviously.
Your master cylinder is designed to compress DOT3 Fluid with one cylinder piston, against another cylinder piston which creates force against a clutch fork that presses your throw out bearing. Your TOB then presses against your clutches pressure plate, the pressure plate releases from the clutch disk which is transferring torque into transmission from your engine. Now you have gears within your transmission that are moving at two different speeds, and a synchronizer within your transmission slips onto teeth to match those two speeds and to lock the gears to a shaft and transfer your torque to an output shaft and then on wards towards your differential gear and thus to your wheels etc.
SO, if your clutch isnt being released enough to allow your synchronizers to lock onto the wanted gear, then its obviously not going to go into gear.
You could try and bleed it one more time but it sounds like the disc is hanging up and not allowing the transmission to spin freely. Either the clutch free play needs adjusting (non-hydraulic clutch) or the pressure plate is not stopping the flywheel and will need replaced. Try adjusting the pushrod between the pedal & master to give you more clutch travel.
