      So dragged the extension cord out to the Jetta and plugged the VCDS cable into my laptop.

      Can't set my warm idle to factory spec.

      I recently bought a 2005.5 Jetta and had the clutch let go.
      The motor was overrev'd, bent valves and had to be replaced.
      So when I say it is dead stock, its as close to stock as I can tell.

      The lever can and does disengage clutch in a movement range that is inside the clutch slaves stroke.

      No bubbles or froth, just clear fluid and still no release action.

      Well my Jetta has the Hat or shouldered style seal, instead of an o-ring.

      I was just pointing it out as a possible issue for the two other...

    12. What about the hose fitting seals??

      I'm working on my new to me 2005.5 2.5.
      I had it about a week when the Clutch Slave failed.
      I had the same hard shifting, lurching into reverse and all that was described above.

      I tried old...
