Wound back out again so drum just catching and went back to mot station 4th time and HEY PRESTO clio now has 1 years mot.

Going to invest in 1 of those bleeding kits for next time.

Thanks all
The retaining clip on the adjusters gets weak over time and the adjustment works its way loose so the problem may return. A new brake adjuster kit is the only true cure most times.
