The pistons on the rear brake calipers SCREW in to the caliper. There are notches on the inner edge of the piston face. engage the notches with a large needle nose plier or a large flat washer and turn clockwise (as you face the piston) to turn the piston in.
There is a special tool that is available at your local autoparts store that is absolutely necessary and will save you a ton of time and aggravation. Using a needle nose plier or washer does not allow you to apply enough pressure unless your are the incredible hulk.

No, just a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the lower caliper bolt, swing the caliper up and slide the pads out. Compress the caliper piston with large slip joint pliers. Lubricate the pad ends where they touch the slides and install new pads.

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.
Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!

I replaced the rear brakes in my 2000 jetta and I had to rent the tool kit from an auto parts store. There are special tools that are needed. Ask you local auto sales shop and you can rent them for like 25 dollars.
