If you have rear discs and pads on the vehicle then you will find that the handbrake is still operated using shoes but inside the brake disc. The piston on the calliper does not need winding back, you just need to slowly compress the piston back into the calliper using a C-clamp or a large set of pump pliers:thumbsup

What he said...you will also need a 7mm hex spanner to remove the 2 caliper bolts.

Flat bladed screw driver but you would probably use a pair of long nose pliers:thumbsup
