Post Replacing rear brake pads

Hey everyone,
I own a 2000 9-5 aero and this weekend I was planning on replacing my rear brake pads. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures from when they replaced theirs or if anyone could tell me if the rear brake pads are set up the same was as the front. Is the same tool that was used in the front used in the back to push the brake piston back or do you use the caliper tool with the round discs with the two prongs?

Saab rear brakes carry two types earlier years have pins that hold the pads; in later year brake pads clipped in as shown in the DIY pics. If your car has the pins they will have to be replaced as well when you replace the pads. Determine which type your car has and go from there.
