Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
Hi, I've about the same problem on a '03 passat diesel. I'm about to check out the problem and found that a lot of water is trapped in the air intake plenum as the drain holes in the compartment is full of dirt. Might be the same in your case, making a small amount of water is sucked into the brake booster, causing the mechanical parts to freeze. Lift the cover over the air plenum and check for water present there.
Regards, Jens, Sweden

Well sounds to me like you might have some moisture in the fluid which can cause the breaks to fail. Have your break system flushed totally out and refilled. Brake fluid is very touchy. If you leave brand new brake fluid bottle open for a few days it will draw moisture from the air and ruin the fluid.
