We had the self adjusting clutch cable replaced as we could not put the car in gear. It was for for 24 hours and now is doing it again. What is the problem? Getting frustrated!!!!

    Most likely the clutch is worn out, that is why the cable keeps stripping, this is very common on Stick VWs. The Clutch probably feels pretty hard and stiff,
    yes?

    WORN THROW OUT BEARING AND OR OTHER CLUTCH COMPONANTS, BUT CHECK THE CABLE INSTALL FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES!
