Question Rear Brake Job with EPB

Does anyone have experience on rear brake job with EPB (electric parking brake) for 2013(and later) AWD model?
Is there any difference to push the piston back compare to the one without EPB, or is a special brake compressor tool needed? Thanks.

I know that the 2013-2016 will be a "wind back" type which need a tool to do. You can rent them from most auto parts stores. I believe that the Electric Brake started with 2017. I read something about a "Maintenance mode" and then you would probably have to wind it back as well.

Just FYI / to clarify - the EPB was introduced with the 2017 model year.

Thanks DJ_SpaRky and Centex.

My Escape is 2017, and I plan to replace the rear pads .

I'm trying to check "Maintenance mode". I bought Haynes manual, but it does not say anything about EPB

I found in below link, it says:
--To replace the rear brake pads, the EPB must be set in the Maintenance Mode before you retract the caliper pistons. You do NOT have to rotate the caliper piston like you did in previous model years

Another FYI ...

See item 1.b at this post - the definitive genuine Ford Motorcraft Service / Repair Manual, only $22 for 72-hour access and you can print the info to your heart's content.

Just might find you can print / archive lots of other items of interest for future maintenance tasks in that 72 hours.

Just for your consideration.

Yes, there is a warning when servicing the rear brakes.

Service actions on vehicles equipped with electronic parking brakes may cause
unexpected parking brake application, which could result in injury to hands or fingers.
Deactivate the electronic parking brake system prior to servicing or removing rear brake
components. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.

Procedure is as follows:

1. Set the ignition to ON.

2. Press and hold the accelerator pedal and place the EPB switch to the RELEASE (downward)
position. Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and EPB.

3. Set the ignition to OFF then set the ignition to ON within 5 seconds. Continue to hold the
accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.

4. NOTE: The EPB system will be deactivated, preventing parking brake application until
service has been completed and service (maintenance) mode has been deactivated. The yellow
EPB indicator will be illuminated and Maintenance Mode will display on the message center.

NOTE: When replacing rear brake pads in service (maintenance) mode, the brake caliper
piston must be compressed into the caliper housing. The brake caliper piston does not have to
be rotated while compressing the piston.

Set the ignition to OFF then release the accelerator pedal and EPB switch.

Deactivation
NOTE: Carry out the following service mode deactivation procedure to activate the EPB system.

1. Set the ignition to ON.

2. Press and hold the accelerator pedal and place the EPB switch in the APPLY (upward)
position. Continue to hold the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.

3. Set the ignition to OFF then set the ignition to ON within 5 seconds. Continue to hold the
accelerator pedal and the EPB switch.

4. NOTE: The EPB system will fully apply and release the parking brake to guarantee sufficient
air gap between the rear brake pads and brake disc.

Release the accelerator pedal and the EPB switch

Whew, are we really advancing anything with all this stuff?

I miss the days when my car wasn't trying to chop off my fingers during a brake job. LOL
