The clutch pedal on my 1995 VW Golf 'sticks' in the half-way-depressed position after I release my foot from the pedal. I believe that the clutch is fully engaged (unclutched) at this point, but a little nudge from underneath is necessary for the pedal to spring to its fully undepressed position. How should this be fixed? Maybe just a little WD-40?

Is the clutch cable operated or hydraulic? On hydraulic clutches that's a common symptom of a failing master and/or slave cylinder(s).
I had this happened on an 1995 Passat and it was the slave cylinder which got replaced and problem fixed.
