2003 Volkswagen Jetta Question: clutch transmission noise

when cold (in garage) start up with clutch engaged started low noise but no issue with shifting or reverse. no noise once warmed up. Previously replaced clutch at 25K by VW due to total breakdown at intersection. now 96K miles -
Answer 1
If the noise goes away when you press down on the clutch pedal it is typically your input shaft bearing. The life of a clutch is very subjective. I have seen people burn them up in 10k and have seen people have them last over 200k. -

My VW won't go into Reverse, 1st or 5th- is it the clutch or transmission and what is the estimated cost? Also the AC knocks when it runs, but cools just fine- is it the compressor?
