On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"

there will be a screw behind the rubber this holds the handle in., if the door has not been used much, greaseing the mechanism may solve this

You have to clamp the flexible break hose with the appropriate tool that will not damage hose so that no pressure can go back up the break line when then piston is wound back.You crack the bleed nipple just enough that it only flows out when the pressure from the piston being wound back in pushes it out.Once piston is all the way back in retighten the bleed nipple,reassemble caliper etc and bleed.The reason you vent off fluid this way is not to put back pressure on the ABS,Bleeding the brakes is easier and the worst of the fluid(most stressed)is evacuated from the brake lines.Last thing top up the master cylinder with exactly the same fluid that is in the vehicle.Mixing fluids can be hazardous in respect of the ABS and seals throughout the brake system.When winding your pistons take special care as the pistons wind back in in opposite directions.

Ok very carefully pull off the mirrior blade. The mirrior blade is clipped but EXTEMELY fragile and will break if forced. From there remove the 2 heated blade wires. The cover is also clipped as you will notice after that is removed. You have to pry with a plastic tip between the cover and hosing near the body of the car while pulling the clips in the housing you see to lift the cover straight up. Once this is done you'll need a t-10 torx screwdriver to remove the lower portion. These screws are when you're looking straight down. With this assembly off you can access the 2 other little screws holding the flasher to the bottom cover. Remove the wires and the little clip and there you go. Installation is reverse.
