Instead of a traditional canister filter like you may have seen on most cars, including a 4 cyl Jetta of the same year this car has a filter housing with a replaceable filter elment.
The filter is located on the front of the engine, accessible from below.
There is a drain plug that can be removed with a 6mm hex key. The filter housing is removed with a 36mm socket.
Your new filter element should come with a replacement o-ring for the housing, apply a little new (engine) oil to the o-ring and replace the old one in the housing. Drop the new filter element in the housing and reassemble.
I don't know if the same applies to the VR6 but on the 1.8T you can find the oil filter by centering your self under the front of the car. Directly behind the radiator is the oil filter about midway up the car. Hoses can get in the way and block you from seeing it sometimes. Hope this helps. My brother has a regular 2.0 jetta, and I got a jetta VR6. The location of the oil filter is different on the VR6 here is a link to find it. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?1749962
