assuming this is an older beetle beetle clutch is easy.jack up rear of car and place on jack stands. unhook engine electrical, throttle cable, fuel line, and heater box jack under engine,undo the four bolts that secure engine to transmission. remove engine.with engine out of car,access to clutch is easy. replace clutch and pressure plate. reinstall engine. an experienced mechanic can do this in 1 hour. If the problem was the cable,remove cable from transmission end, unbolt pedal assembly from center tunnel. clutch pedal has a hook inside the center tunnel that the cable hooks on. slide new cable into tube in center tunnel. replace pedal assembly, keep cable tight enough that it doesn't unhook while you put it back on the transmission end.adjust for correct freeplay
