Hi - an issue I have with my Golf is in wet
weather. I pull away, the car
begins to ****/misfire. For the rest of the journey it feels like the car isn't
'firing on all cylinders' and struggles to accelerate and cuts out when idling. The problem only
goes away when the car is unused for a period of time (usually a few
hours or overnight) to 'dry out'.

ignition wires and coils are very common replacement items on these vehicles, damp and wet weather are sure signs of misfires, stalls and no start conditions, have your local technician test for coil/wire arcing when wet.
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
My best guess is that the drive belt to the hydraulic pump is loose / worn, and it slips when wet. Also the extra load imposed on the system by turning when stationary causes it to slip even when dry.
Check that first :-)
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.
no it wont cause a misfire, misfire is caused by worn uot spark plugs and or plug wires or bad injector, but some golfs have very coming problem with the ignition module going bad causing number 1 cylinder to misfire
