Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
'06 Jetta has problem with right rear wheel getting hot. Left rear gets a little bit warm. Both front wheels and rotors stay stone cold. Have replaced both rear calipers and that did not help. Then replaced worn out pads and rotors at 130,000 miles. Front brakes are still OK. The next thing recommended to to is replace master cylinder and booster pump. That seems way too general of a measure to take, as the rear brakes, right more than left, are the problem, and not the fronts at all.

These are not much different from most modern disc brake systems. Once the wheel is off, you will find the caliper assembly is held on with guide pins that screw into place. Little spring clips hold the pads to the caliper. If you do one side at a time you can reference the other to make sure you get it back together right. Be sure to unhook any speed and wear sensors before pulling the caliper off. Use a coat hanger or other wire to suspend the caliper. (not good to hang by the hose) Take the cap off the brake master and compress the brake pistons with a C clamp before you try to put the new pads in place. If the master overflows you will want some rags there to catch it. Brake fluid and paint don't get along very well. To do the job right, you need a dial caliper to check the thickness of the rotors. The minimum thickness is stamped into the hubs on most VWs. If there are scores or lines worn into the rotor they need to be removed and machined. If not, you may be able to remove the glaze from the rotors with some fine sandpaper and lots of elbow grease. ( I always take mine in for machining as it also ensures any warping is taken care of.) On vehicles with 4 wheel discs it is recomended to do all 4 at the same time, but NEVER replace in less than pairs. (front or rear) Another safety note, don't breath the black dust. It's carcinogenic.

SOURCE: sticking brakes
It seems the front brakes are jamming, thiscould be the caliper piston being corroded and since it wa sdriven to its max the piston have travelled way too out forthe dust rubber to be able to protect the dust or water getting through.
The best remedy would be to overhaul the front brake calipers, best would be to remove dismantle and examine if the pistons are ok with no burr or rusty around it.

You probably have air in the system. You will have to bleed them. Or it is possible that you bight have purchased defected calipers. Also are you sure that you put the rite pads in the rite place?
