Hi! Thank you very much for answering my previous question however ; I have another question about this Beetle, and was hoping you could diagnois the problem for me .I have recently put in 2 clutches and 2 New Master Slaves now it is doing the same thing. I drive my car for two weeks and then it starts....... my car will start smoking and then then after about 2 miles the car becomes real slow to drive and wham I am on the side of the rode not be able to move my car at all but, all my gears will move. After about a day when the car it has completely cooled down my Car will start again only to do the same thing as before and if I continue to run it this way. my clutch will completely burn-up! I just do not know what else to do with this car! Do you have any suggestions on what is going on with this Beetle. I have taken it to 3 Different Mechanics and they are all stumped. Thanks for your time in Advance. Warm Regards Tracie

I wonder if the clearance between the clutch pedal to master cylinder is too small. As the clutch is used the fluid may get hot and expand and cause the clutch to drag due to insufficient clearance.
