Manual or electric handbrake. Yours is the same year as mine which has manual handbrake. If you don't release the handbrake you are not going to be able to get the caliper off the disc.

You will need a windback tool and the one you can buy over the counter by Hilka etc that say fit Ford, don't fit the Kuga. Something like this should have the right adapter for winding the pistion back in. You can do it with long nose pliers but it hurts and takes ages. Both pistons wind in clockwise. I believe electric handbrake just push back in but you have to put the handbrake in service mode.

I think that link is out of stock now but there are plenty more. Just make sure you pick a UK seller or you could be down to metal by the time it arrives.

If the adapter you have has pin centres around 18mm it will fit the rears. I can't remember the exact size but it's either 18, 19 or 20mm.

If you are changing the rear discs then chances are you will need a T12 torx female socket. I bought a set from screfix for £10.99 I think. Only 3/8" drive but they are fine.
