55 Scenic 2 - Rear Disks / Pads done, handbrake not auto adjusting?

I just did (one) side of my wifes back brakes on her scenic, with the intention to move onto the next side after tea.

Im pretty competent id like to think, its all done properly, didnt use the lever in the boot, just took the handbrake off in the car and then sat it in gear and on chocks to do the disk / pads.

wound the piston back in with a caliper rewind tool and put it all back together, however now the handbrake doesnt bite the disk hardly at all when its applied.

is there an auto adjuster i can unratchet, or a way to take up any slack in the cable? my understanding is that by winding the caliper back in this shouldnt happen.. any hints?
