Default XC60 Brakes Refresh Question

I need to do the pads front and rear plus rear rotors, 2013 XC60 T6. Any special procedures or is this straight-forward, press the pistons into the calipers to make room for new pads whilst keeping an eye on fluid level at the reservoir?

Front is simple. Push in pistons. Good to go.

The rear uses an electrical park brake. You need to wind the motor in. There are 3 T30's. Undo them, pull off the motor. Unwind.

All Good after that.

Some have used a 9V battery to drive the parking brake motor. Piston still has to be pushed in. If the rear pads are really worn and you are using big pliers, you might need two because the piston tilts easily and won't move.

Thanks, Jordan and Lankku. I did the rear pads before but I can't remember how I wound the motor in. Will look online.

Found out Volvo thoughtfully includes instructions in pad box, in like 20 different languages plus Klingon.
