Question Electronic handbrake wont engage.

I've just changed the rear pads on my Scenic and now find that the handbrake wont engage.

I thought maybe I'd wound the pistons in further than required and that engaging and disengaging the handbrake a few time would cause it to self adjust. I've done this quite a few times now and still, though I can hear the motor when pulling the handbrake lever, the car still rolls freely.

Am I being impatient, do I need to persevere with applying and releasing the brake, or is there something else that could be wrong?
