pedal moves but doesn't pull cable at all. can pull up at trans end until throw out bearing pressure is felt. having accessibility problem at pedal end..removed lower panel and instrument cluster still can't see cable end.. any known short cuts?? seem's dash and/or steering column needs removal to replace the cable..

These 'self-adjusting' VW clutch cables go out like crazy, get a new factory unit, but make sure that your clutch is still good, or it will ruin the new cable.
You can replace the cable without removing the dash, you may have to lower the steering column though, be sure to disconnect the battery so the air bag does not go off.
