Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
A dragging brake shoe or pad is the usual cause of this symptom. Inspect the brake for contact with the rotor or drum. If a drum brake, back off the self adjuster. If a disk brake, check to see if the caliper piston will retract. You can use a small screwdriver between the rotor and the rear pad to gently pry the pad back. If ir is difficult to pry back, replace the brake caliper and bleed the brake line. If you have more questions or need further instructions, please let us know.

Likely one of your brake calipers is not releasing - likely a glide pin has seized up and needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-lubricated. you will notice excessive brake dust on the hot wheel because the brake is always dragging causing the heat.
