Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

While replacing REAR CALIPERS Park Brake Should NOT BE APPLIED Until Completely DONE with PROCEDURE,Nor Should it be Released During Procedure. As isogeorge Said Your Problem MAY Be in the Adjustment of the PARK BRAKE CABLE, Requiring removal of Rubber BOOT @ HANDBRAKE and Tightening or Loosening of Cable whichever you deem Appropriate. In My Thoughts it is too tight thus Engaging PARK BRAKE SWITCH turning ON LIGHT. PLEASE Feel FREE to Refer Back to Me For ANY Assistance with this Problem, Hope this Gets you on the right Track and Solves your Problem.
