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.
