I reckon you sorta see that changing the backing plate will be an "involved" job
Anytime i work on something i'm not familiar with i get a repair manual specific to that rig.....i have many manuals for my family's vehicles........if it's for someone else, i make them get their own manual! I explain, $30 now may save them mega $$$s....it will be useful for their next repair too....and other info too!
This would be your best bet, doing it yourself, things are step x step and they don't accidentally leave stuff out....and they give you torque specifications...something that gets left out by many giving you a quick answer.
You tube is a good place to "get the feel" of what you are about to embark on---i'd use it as a guide, but adhere to the repair manual sorta as "law" ......you might change the search words i used and watch the suggestion videos down the side
Warning!!! They throw in girly stuff, just to steer you in another direction.....mama might not be happy to see you watching them instead of the "how to video"
I have gotten you started on "a search" below, your take over searching
Something that may help us help you would be some pics of the situation.......like several different shots of the plate and its damage----the wheel cylinder "starting to go in"---cylinder in but do no more damage......well lit....in focus...point at and 'splain stuff too
Pics are ez to post---maybe we can give a better solution without all of the changing out trouble
