Sorry, but that definitely sounds like you need some clutch work done. If you have a Pepboys in I out area, get a price that work. They also have coupons online for 10% to 15% off that you can use. In addition, they also have a towing service. Look into it.


yep your clutch plate broke don't try and drive it or you will just damage it more. Take the car only to a certified vw mechanic most joe blow mechanics can handle this job tho i never take a risk with mechanics unknow. Mr transmission can do the work as well.
