It is best to release the handbrake cable adjustment first. As the drums wear there is a edge which catches the linings. Some of the Clios have a hole in the back of the drum (usually blocked by a grommet). If you push a screwdriver of such inside you can sometime force the internal handbrake lever backwards and this may allow some clearance. It is is not unusual to cause damge to the lining if the removal is very difficult.
On many occasions I have resorted to using a hub puller - see attached picture of an example.
The wheel bearing is part of the drum assembly and there is no need to remove the circlip.
