On a 1998 Passat, if you push the piston on the rear caliper in without turning it the caliper is destroyed. You need to buy a special tool to turn the caliper as it is being pushed in. There are some persons on EBAY selling universal brake caliper piston pushing tools on EBAY.
If you just push it in, it will not automatically readjust the brakes. You will have very hot rear rotors from the constant rubbing.

You replace rotors when they get too thin, or are warped. They may be to thin to be turned and still alright to use. Rotors do not "have to" be turned to put new pads on.
If the rotors are in good condition, not warped, not scratched, then you can replace the pads without turning the rotors. Inspect the rotors carefully.
If you manged to replace the rotors w/o unhooking the calipers - no.

The most common cause of this problem is warped brake rotors. Get it replaced soon. Whenever you replace rotors, you should replace the pads. The old pads will have conformed to the shape of the rotors, so braking efficiency and life will be down if you use them with the new rotors.
Remove brake caliper and caliper frame. Rotors are now free.
