The early Golfs, 85 to ?? had a thich rubber spacer and a large washer on
the firewall to replace the bracket on the pedal cluster. Works good, same
cable, just change adjustment a little.

It is amazing to me how many times I hear of the clutch bracket breaking on
the Cabriolet forums, and how little I hear of it here.
Over there, a very common fix is to simply weld a very large washer to the
fire wall and essentially stop using the bracket. The washer replaces it.
A small amount of digging in the Cabriolet forums on vwvortex.com should
yield more details, though there really isn't much more.
