SOURCE: rear brake pad change
No you don't, it is however for most of us a lot easier if you do. Check or mark your axle position on both sides before loosening or removal. After putting things back together check your belt tension. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: changing rear brake pads..
if the 04 is the same as my 05 ultra (and i belive it is) the rear caliper can not be removed with out pulling the axel out, and taking the 3 big star bolts out will split the caliper in half, (it is a 2 peice)
take the 2 small star bolts out, use a stiff putty knife to push the pistons back, before you pull the old pads out, make sure you take the cover off the master, slip new pads in, start with the frount and put the bolts thru to hold it then the rear
when you retighten the bolts you want the hear a "pop" that means the rear tip of the bolt is past the retaining spring, if you dont hear a pop the bolts will work there way out, (found this out the hard way, $129 new rotor, $195 new caliper)

SOURCE: how do I install the
I'm not really sure what you're talking about when you say "pad seperator". There are two stainless steel "slides" that go on the caliper bracket to protect it from wear from the ears on the pads and there's a funny little spring that keeps the pads from rattling. This is one of the areas where a picture is worth a thousand words. Try this site and see if it helps.
