Don't know about 2007's but there are 3 ways of them being attached.
Bolts
Pins
or Clips internally that you have to overcome.

I have all three types on my cars.

You don't have bolts, so where the VW attaches to the differential look at the CV end for a Cross roll pin, that you may have to remove with a roll pin punch.
My Honda's and Toyota's have an internal clip to the inner CV, that I have to use a block of wood and a PryBar to get it off the Diff.

Also removing the Tie-rod end from the Spindle usually gives you more breathing room as well as removing the Strut Bar from the Lower ball joint.
