Did you just change the axle or boots? 33 ft-lb, try some blue locktite. If the thread is dirty that could cause a false reading. When you tighten then, double check the torque, you may want to go a little higher.

I am a new owner of a 2003 Golf TDI. I have been going over the car and I too was changing my oil and notice several bolts loose on both axles. Is this a common occurrence?
Slightly overtighten or remove, clean out all the grease in the threads on both side, and use some medium threadlocker...and overtighten slightly. You won't be happy if the axles come loose while you're driving.
