When you open the rear hatch you should have some sort of access to a couple screws that hold the taillight to the body. I don't have a Passat, so I'm not exactly sure where those screws would be. Try looking around where the weather stripping for the hatch is. After removing the screws, removing the entire housing will probably require disconnecting or removing the bulbs, so don't just yank it off.
