I am changing the brake pads on our 2005 S-Type. How do you release brake pressure to reassemble?

You will need a large C-Clamp or a cailper piston tool. Place an old brake pad against the piston in the caliper and use the C-Clamp to push the brake pad against the piston to collapses the piston into the caliper. Also open the master cylinder cap and place a towel around the area to catch any brake fluid that would come out of the master cylinder as you collapes the piston, this normal, but doesn't always happen, depending on the level of fluid in the master cylinder.

Back brakes lock up

Have you jacked up the right rear tire to spin it? Have you used the emergency brake? The e-brake cable could be stuck on. It could be a bad wheel cylinder. or if it has rear disc brakes it could be a faulty caliper or a collapsed brake hose.
