Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
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.

If the master cylinder cap is on - the piston might not go in the caliper..
Remove the cap to the master & try the C clamp again..
Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

On the rear brakes on a 2006 jetta gli to close the caliper you need a c clamp and pliers, put pressure on the caliper and with the pliers turn the cilinder head that will bring down so you can install the new brake pads. Good luck
