They are heavy compared to cars with hydraulic clutch pedals.
Other than dripping through some 3 in 1 drip oil down the cable to help free the cable up if it's a bit stiff and the cable routed correctly and at the gearbox end it's straight down I don't think there's more you can do?

Maybe post up some pictures and we may see something.

Have you tried another Mk1 Golf to see how that pedal feels?
