scenic 2 - cant reset handbrake

I just did my rear discs and pads and now the handbrake on the drivers side isnt working properly.

The handbrake mechanism is working fine - its pulling the cable - but the lever on the back of the caliper isnt sat against the stops when the handbrake is off.

I used a capiler rewind tool when i put it all back together, how can i sort this? Should i look at taking the caliper off again, resetting the handbrake lever on the caliper, and then rewinding the piston?

Its wierd, its like its not reset properly when i rewound the piston in.

please help, its MOT time.
