Re: MK2 Clio - Rubbish rear brakes

If the handbrake is partly on it can throw out the adjustment.
The lever in the car maybe down but the cable can still be tight enough to hold the levers off their stops. Maybe more on one side than the other.

Back the cable adjuster off until the cable is slack then recheck the threaded adjusters and see if anything has changed.

Could be a bit of air in that cylinder or pipe. You never know.

Check those and report back if it's still not playing.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
