I know certain years used a single mass flywheel, and others a dual mass. I don't recall anything on sizes, but don't quote me on that. The job itself is pretty straight forward if you've got the tools, and the patience.. maybe even some muscle.
my clutch unfortunately is going out so i went and got an estimate at my vw dealer for about a grand. i went and looked up a diy on how to replace it and im thinking about doing it but when i went to go look at how much a clutch kit is going to cost Vw switched the sizes in the the year from 8 5/8ths to 9 and i was wondering how to tell which one i have? anyone done the mk4 clutch replacement and how hard and long it is?
Don't tell anyone I work for at a Chevrolet store
Lift air, air tools, i can have the old clutch out in under 20 mins. But take away that stuff, add a dirt floor, snow, rain, cold , heat, it takes longer. Beer makes everything easier. So figure driveway, should take a novice 4 hours. Beer breaks not included. Its just nuts and bolts. And remembering to tighten it all back up.

This is all you need.
However, given the age and mileage, you might want to spend a little extra on replacing the likely very worn transmission mount.
