Has your's got the Handbrake motor unit by rear wheel or the electronic actuators on each caliper ??
The first doesn't (or rather shouldn't) need any intervention on the electronic system.
The second does, even to wind the calipers back.

Mind you, a pad change for 40 quid and I'd have gone for it either way
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
