Question about Cars & Trucks
First you need to get inside the interior panel of the car and open it. Once in there you will need to pull things aside to reach the bolts that hold the outside handle in place. If you think it will be too much to do without a guide, get a copy of Haynes auto repair for the 2012 Jetta at your local auto parts store. It will step you through it.

Remove plastic plug on the inside of door there is 10 mm hole use a hooked pick set pick put through the hole and pull the plastic cir clip towards the back of the door that will release the smaller part of the outer handle then the handle itself can be taken out.this is so simple but so deceiving the actual cir clip is hard to notice because of all the plastic **** on the inside backing plate the cir clip is just on the inside of hole look hard it is 2mm thick & 20mm high (black plastic) place point of pick in between backing plate & cir clip hook it and pull back the front door is based on the same principle but is a lot easier

There should be six or seven allen wrench screws around the edge of the door panels. Loosening these releases the retaining clips inside. You will then want to remove the manual window crank if you have one by laying two fingers flat on the door panel and pushing the ring around the base of the crank sideways. You might have to rotate around this as it only pushes one way. Next you will have to remove the two large golden screws directly under the door panels handle. If you have rear door panel speakers you will have to politely pry off the speaker grill with a flat blade screwdriver and remove the speakers four screws and the wire clip from behind the speaker. You will also have to unscrew the door lock post. Then you should be able to lift the door panel up to release the top lip of it from the door.

You'll see a small ring on the inside of the crank where it meets the panel. That ring holds the crank in place. To remove the handle simple push the ring up and the handle will slide right off. Depending on the position of the crank the ring might have to be pushed up down or sideways. Hope that helps.

I have the same Problem. I Simply cut into the middle of the boot between the door and body The broken wire was right there, I pulled each end out and held the wire there with a pair needle nose pliers, stripped the end with a knife and attach a mulyi-strand jumper between both ends with electrial wire twists. Leave 2" approx. then slip the boot back over them. Use # 14 Wire. A Quick reasonable fix. If brakes again repeat again. The new Haness will have the same Problem down the road.
