I had a similar problem with my son's 1998 Jetta K2 4 door. I sprayed loads of WD40 into the locking area from the end of the door through the clip slot, worked the mechanism sprayed some more and finally it start working. My mechanic said these are very prone to moisture causing rusting on the moving parts.

newer remotes just pull apart, no screws
first detached the half with the pivoting key
just pull that half away from the other half
on the half without the key attach
it splits apart to expose the battery (usually a 2032 watch battery)
you may need a small flat head screw driver to help to split it apart

I had a similar problem on my 2004 Jetta & it was fixed as part of a recall. The invoice says that they "repaired rear door lock clips". Maybe check with the dealership & see if your is part of the recall too.
