Just curious... have you changed brakes on other Ford models? I've yet to need to replace pads on my '16 so I don't know if there are any special tricks or tools required.
On my '07 Mustang, there is a special tool to wind the rear calipers back open before replacing the pads. But since the MKC has the electronic parking brake, perhaps it's different. The fronts only require a C-clamp to push the piston back inside the cylinder.
If you find any specifics, post 'em up - I'm curious.
