Default XC 60 Rear Brakes Renewal Question

I need to do the pads and probably the rotors on our 2013 XC60 T6. Does this job require the XC go to a dealer or a Volvo specialist to be hooked up to their computer or can I just proceed with pushing the pistons in, keeping an eye on the fluid level at the MC, throw the pads in, etc like we have done since time immemorial?

I have no idea tbh... but why would it need to go to dealer?

Never push the pistons back into the caliper without opening the bleeder. If you do, you'll be pushing dirty fluid into the master.

Looks like you have to wind in the parking brake motor in order to retract the piston but it's straightforward otherwise.
