Re: Clio rear brake cylinder bolts

It's worth trying a 3/8 socket or ring spanner. Should be 9.5 approx across the flats so could be a closer fit.

Does the head look damaged/rusty ??

Thinking on it, proper brake flare spanners are 9 and 11 mm so those are most likely sizes.
Will your 9mm tap on to the heads...rust will make em slightly bigger.
