Having problems with your 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio ?

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?

Answers :

If this is a self adjusting clutch cable then check the end of the cable to see if the keeper broke. The keeper keeps the clutch connected to the throwout arm.
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.
