FWIW, I just did the rears on my wife's 981. Same brake pads as our 718s in the rear. It is easier than the fronts, no need to remove caliper. Old school 911 type w pins holding pads in place. I have not done my 718 yet, honestly have not even taken a good look, but if the pads are the same I would guess the replacement is the same...Do you do the brake pad and/or rotor change yourself? If so how do you change the rear rotors? Does the electric handbrake make it difficult to do them without the appropriate software control?
