Ok well the pads are going to be the same procedure for the front and the rear. The rotors in the rear are a bit harder as the parking brake is actually built into the rotor. So there is actually a little drum brake on the inner hub of the rotor. If there is a rust ring on the parking brake drum, it will cause for some real problems upon removal. Here is how to change the pads.
Notice: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from its mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak.
Caution: Do not depress the brake pedal with the brake rotors/calipers and/or the brake drums removed. Damage to the brake system may result. If brake system damage occurs and is not repaired, vehicle damage and/or personal injury or death may result.
