Instructions

1

Remove the screws holding the shifter boot onto the floor, using the appropriate socket or screwdriver. These screws could have been replaced over time, and might have a hexagon head for a socket, or a slot for a screwdriver. Make sure the Jetta is in "Park."
2

Lift the bottom of the boot up and over the shifter handle, so that it is out of the way -- do not try to take it completely off the handle. Then you can see switch and wiring. See if you can find bypass that was done.

Not all A2 VWs (of that vintage) had a clutch safety switch.

If it had one, look for the switch mounted to the op of the clutch pedal
assembly (pedal cluster).

It would be a 2 wire switch.

You just want to be sure that you don't accidentally start the
engine while it is in gear and NOT have the clutch pressed?

Well thanks for the help, the (Vw)jetta of that year may not have had a neutral safety switch, but it seems strange that the car just wont start from the key switch, what shall I do? (The Starter is good)
