    Look on Youtube "bleed clutch slave cylinder" it does not need to be a VW the procedure will be similar. In all likelihood the master and or slave cylinder are probably bad. For replacement procedures there is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
