Screw in on rear unfortunately. Fronts push in. Usually end up needing to buy a whole set for like 40 or 50 quid annoyingly, can't just get the one you need for like a 10er when I looked.

luckily i ordered mintex rear pads, and a mate has a caliper tool so no big deal, just thought i would ask before taking the calipers off so i can get the tool at hand
