Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
Worn out front suspension components are the normal cause for negative camber. Camber can be adjusted by relocating the subframe with a little bit of movement and in some cases relocating the upper shock mount bolts. If the vehicle has been in a wreck you may have a bent subframe or lower control arm to blame. What is the measurement your getting and do you know the ride height reading?
This is my 1st answer of what can be many. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. At the top of your screen is the rating box that you only get to use once. Please make sure to complete the mandatory rating when ready or reply and say "I am pleased with my answer". Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way.
This is all I got in the original post. 02 jetta TDI wagon extreme negative caber.
On the 02 model there is not a rear ale camber adjustment like on the later years. Possible causes for rear axle negative camber are going to be worn suspension causing the ride height to be to low or a bent axle beam. Here are the allowed specs. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/camber.png
I did not say what amount of camber is allowed. I provided the specs for the camber on this model from VW. Did you check all the things I mentioned that can cause the camber to be incorrect?
Have you checked for the rear toe out of specs?
Have you checked the rear ride height?
