Rear brake adjustment - non sport Mk2 Ph1

  Clio Mk2 Ph1 1.4 16v
Hi guys, wondered if anybody could help me out. I've noticed my brake pedal travel has increased a little recently and I suspect the self adjusters on the rear drums are not working effectively.

Does anybody know if I'll be able to manually adjust the rear brakes without actually taking the drums off? I couldn't see an inspection panel - wondered if I'd be able to reach the adjuster nut through a wheel bolt hole?

gotto take the drums off to adjust them, easy job, just take the centre hub nut off and pull it off

Thanks, was hoping to avoid it as I'm told I'll need to replace the hub nuts after removal. Not that they'd break the bank.
