I need to replace the clutch on 1997 vw jetta, does it have a cluth cable that would need to be replaced, or is it more complicated?

Most modern clutches have a hydraulic line. Emphasis on most, but this is a moot point for a production vehicle. What it should be is this: the clutch pedal is connected to a reservoir, which accepts DoT #3 brake Fluid (Usually), has a hydraulic line going down to the clutch, and either outside the transmission, or right inside it, is a slave cylinder that activates the actual clutch forks.

Greetings, My 1997 Lincoln Town Car's A/C compressor clutch just went out with a shower of sparks and a cloud of smoke. I stopped and poured water on it to cool it down. Question: Do I need to replace...

You can replace just the clutch. You will need a special puller to remove the clutch, it screws to the front of the compressor and presses it off. I believe the same tool is used to install it, also. Not completely sure on that point. The tool may be able to be rented from an auto parts store, or may be available on eBay for a reasonable price.

I need to replace the clutch on my volkswagon jetta, I need the instructions so I can determine if it is something I can do myself. Can you help?

This a quick summery: You have to remove the drive shaft. this you will need a special tool must auto parts store will have or can get it for you. Then support the motor from the top. remove the shifting linkage, remove the starter, remove the speed-o-cable (plug the hole a big cork stopper or a clean rag), remove the ele. connection (the backup switch), remove bracket from the mount on the rear of the transmission and from the transmission, remove all the bolts from the transmission to engine, pull the transmission back you may need to twist it too. Watch it it will be heavy.
