I am wondering if anyone has changed their brake pads on the 2017 Mazda 3 Sport, made in Mexico, with the electronic parking brake. I have a few questions:

1. Does the Ford "maintenance mode" instruction set floating around here actually work for our cars?

2. I know that made in Mexico and made in Japan cars use different style brake pads. Assuming I get made in Mexico rear pads, are the pads different between EPB cars and non EPB cars?

3. Other than the OEM rear pads (BAY02643ZA, which are expensive and seem to be out of stock at a lot of places), will any aftermarket pads work for my Mexico EPB car: WAGNER QC2042, CENTRIC 10320420, or WAGNER ZD2042?
