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

SOURCE: vw golf brakes rear seized
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.

a common problem with the golf hatchback is where the cables run thru from the car to the tailgate they pass thru a rubber boot surround by the hinges. because the bootlid is open and closed many times the wires that control items on the tailgate can break.
take off the rubber boot from one side where it fits to the car and slide it back over the cables that are inside it and if you see some cables are broken that is your problem.rejoin the cables and it should be ok.this is something to check after you know that the switch is ok, it is quite a common problem. hope this helps.

You will need to check to see if your VW has anti-lock brakes installed on it. The pistons that push in usually look like an inverted cup, hollow end facing the brake pads. The pistons with antilock brakes are usually solid across the top facing the brake pads and will need to be rotated in order for them to collapse back inwards. Some rotate easily, others are a bit more difficult. The pistons on my VW Beetle have two (2) angular grooves opposite one another. If your look like this you may be able to use the blunt end of some needle-nose pliars, or you can head over to your local auto parts retailer for a "magic box", a square cube with as many as five (5) different patterns for the buttons that insert into the angular grooves on different vehcles. Find the pattern that best fits your grooves and attache the magic box to a 3/8 rachet with an extension. Rotate the piston slowley in one direction, then the other to loosen it up. To collapse the piston I believe you will need to rotate counter clockwise. Good luck, this style piston is only on the rear wheels.

Remove the wheel first.
In there you will see the brake pads.
The brake pads are held in place by the caliper. The caliper is secured with two 15 mm bolts, and two 13 mm on the opposite side.
Once you undo the caliper you should also find an apex clip on top op the pads.
Once you have done that , slide the caliper out and remove the pads.
To refit you may need to compress the caliper. You can use a clamp, but on VW I compress the caliper using a robust wooden stick as a lever inside the U shaped part.
Before putting the new brakes I use an hand file tool to mill the corners of the pad, this will increase aderence to the rotor disk.
Remember that the car will have reduced braking power when you install new pads.
