981 Disk Replacement

I've replaced the disks and pads on all my previous cars but originally planned to entrust the porker to an independent. Until I came across a YouTube clip from Autodoc. The front disks/pads appear easier to change than on most of my previous vehicles, so I think I'm going to save some hard-earned and do them myself when the time comes.
 
The rears look a little more complex as the ebrake has to be retracted with PIWIS. Is this the case, or is there another way to achieve the same effect? Also, does anyone have a link to order replacement caliper screws? I can get the rest from Autodoc.
 
Thanks again.

    I'm pretty sure that you'll need to back-off the e-brake via the diagnostics. If you don't have access to PIWIS/Durametric diagnostics, something like one of  iCarsoft's offerings will probably do the job.
     
    Design 911 or the Porscheshop should be able to supply the caliper bolts, but you may find that they're about the same price from any Porsche Dealer, and if you joined the Club you'd get a 10% discount..!

    Thanks again Jeff. The iCarsoft one states it can deal with the ebrake. But at £250 for the unit it would make the total cost much higher than a specialist. Not sure I'd make much use of it afterwards. The fronts will be the first to go. So I'll keep with the easy job first.

    I think that the iCarsoft POR V2.0 would do the job. £136 in the sale here:
     
    https://ljmcardiagnostics.co.uk/products/icarsoft-por-v2-0-porsche-professional-diagnostic-scan-tool
     
    Although it's a bit expensive for the brakes alone, it could come in useful for other issues, and you could always sell it on later for £50 or so. On the other hand, £136 should buy you a fair bit of time at a Porsche specialist.
     
    Maybe there's something cheaper around that would do the one-off job?

     Thanks again Jeff. I'll go the specialist route when the time comes and see if they would part with the info.
