Remove wheel; remember to block up front wheels as you need to take hand brake off. Remove wheel, undo 2 x 19mm bolts from rear of calipers and remove caliper off the disc, remove old pads, compress piston. The rear brakes have a slotted piston that needs to be turned clockwise to retract nd push piston rearward back into caliper. There is a special tool available at local autoparts store or you can try needle nose pliers. Replace pads and put caliper back on disc asnd bolt up.
