The emergency brakes are whatever your rear brake pads are.
Yes, I understand the emergency brake has to be off so the pads wont be up against the disc or drum when attempting to change the brakes and rotors.
You need a 3/8 Allen key to release the caliper.

The brake pads are actually shoes. The emergency brake relies on the rear brake shoes being applied by tension on the emergency brake cable against the rear drums to hold the car stationary. In other words, the rear brakes double as the emergency (parking) brakes.
use autozone.com or go to autozone and you can get a print out of how to change your back brakes.just make sure you get oem pads or you will have a lot of trouble down the road.
If there is a chance the normal brakes may not work properly to stop the vehicle the handbrake cable on the rav4 2002 needs to be changed. Adjust the emergency brake, or handbrake, using a wrench or screwdriver. Turn until the brake line becomes tighter.

If its a rear wheel drive car it would be because more power to that axle, therefore more stopping power is exerted by the brake pads. When applying braking more forces are exerted on the front of the vehicle, this is why vehicles fitted with only one set of disc brakes (superior to drum) use them on the front of the car, and why front brakes usually wear faster. In your case I might suspect dragging brakes possibly caused by a sticking emergency brake cable. In most cases these cables are only connected to the rear brakes hence the accelerated wear. i would guess that either the emergency brakes are stuck on or the rear calipers should be inspected and or replaced. Or, it might just be, if you have front drum brakes, that the rear brakes are adjusted closer then the fronts were. If the front drum brakes were way out of adjustments (farther away from the drum) then the rears would contact first and then the fronts. You should always check/adjust drum brakes once or twice a year. I have not seen front drum brakes since the late sixties. The accepted course of action is normally every two changes of brake pads in the front a change of shoes in the back if complete inspection warrants this action. the only way brake shoes wear quickly in the rear is if the brake cylinders are jammed open then promoting the shoes to always be in contact with the drums or the emergency brake is sticking on when you release it. Have an inspection and correct your problem and save your money in the long run.
well the rear brakes assuming that they are drums, are self adjusting, if they are not adjusting properly change the springs and the self adjusting cams could be seized up, kia calls them rear brake strut assembly

If the emergency brake is on the calipers, you need a special tool to compress the caliper. This should be rentable from the parts store.
