VW Beetle clutch cable. Inspect your clutch cable any time you are doing clutch or transmission repair. Clutch cables stretch and eventually wont' allow the clutch to function properly. Replace yours if it shows any signs of wear and tear.
A bad clutch cable can lead to odd wear on your clutch disc if it was binding and not allowing full engagement. If you have been ignoring the clutch cable for a long time in your Beetle you will want to pick up a clutch kit to make sure your transmission is fully engaged. Why not add some high quality gear oil to your order. The synthetic gear oil shown below will give you smoother shifts and extend your transmission service intervals.
