Having problems with your 1999 Volkswagen Passat ?
Clutch is slipping, hard to get into gear - 1999 Volkswagen Passat
Your clutch master cylinder may need to be replaced. This is where I would start as its cheaper than doing a clutch replacment. I would take the car to a tranny shop and have them do the free estimate. Make them tell you whats wrong and go from there...
The clutch and pressure plate is just worn out you will need to remove the transmission assembly to replace the clutch and pressure plate
