both front and rear
my model is SES, i guess there's no drum at the rear brake. They are all disc.

front brakes are pretty easy, they don't have captive rotors and the calipers are pretty easy to get off and the pads slide right out. The front caliper pistons can be clamped straight down to retract them.

The back is more complicated, while the rotors and calipers are still removed easily, a special tool is required to retract the pistons as they must be twisted while being pushed in.

Hmm, I didn't see the complexity for the rear pads from the Chilton repair book. Are you saying I need a tool other than a C-clamp to the rear pistons?
