Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
8mm hex (allen key)

Caliper or most brake part bolts are between 10mm and 19mm for the wheel bolts , get a set online if haven't got tools , don't waste time and money just trying to get a particular size as many different manufacturers are used for the same part and may just get one that uses a different bolt head size

Your pads NORMALLY will ride on the disks, they will NOT normally make any rubbing sound.
I doubt your calipers are stuck unless you drove into the seawater at Daytona or something similiar. To test, chock rear wheels, jack up front of car, spin L and then R wheels by hand, if they spin whthout much effort, your front caliper pistons are probably fine. Flip car around and repeat for other end;~)
You may find one of the rear wheels has a grinding feeling and some play if you grab it top and bottom and try to wiggle perpendicular to the line of travel. If this is the case you need a wheel bearing, could be on the front bearing, but my jetta experience says rear bearing (twice).
DO NOT BUY CALIPERS unless you know they are bad, they shouldn't be bad and they are expensive.
Good luck and post us back

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

I had the exact problem today on my in-laws 06 jetta. Come to find out - this model has an electrical parking brake in the rear. The piston will not go in manually like other disc brakes. You must disconnect the electrical wire in the back and run a jumper to the connection from a power source like the battery and the piston will go in.

I hope this might help. -- I had the same problem yesterday and fix the problem today. The steps on the manual (page 32) was too simple and wrong for my case. Read carefully the followint steps and thank me if these steps work. -- JB (owner of Jetta 2.5, 2006 model)
* The most important thing is to make sure that the LED in the driver side window frame stays blinking. The blinking means that the receiver has entered a programming mode and is waiting for the signal from the key. Good luck!
1. Insert the key with a faulty remote into the driver door lock and turn the key to the UNLOCK position 3 times in succession for at least 0.5 seconds each time, and within a total duration of 5 seconds.
: The system should now enter so called a "programming mode" and the window frame LED should blinking once every 1~2 seconds for the next 15 seconds. The faulty remote must be programmed during this period.
2. Aim the key to the (infrared) window frame LED which can be considered as a key signal receiver and press the lock button of the key fob and keep it pressed. While the button is pressed, press the unlock button three times in succession for at least 0.5 seconds each time.
3. Release both buttons.
* After all the efforts described above, the system should now acknowledge a successful programming by flashing the LED once every 1~2 seconds for more than 10 seconds. (Someone said that the small LED on the key fob should also blink a few times; although it didn't in my case.)
