Adjusting UPVC Door Cams

There is a cold draft coming through my UPVC doors and one of them whistles when the wind picks up. I successfully tightened up the hinge side with allen keys, but have not been able to adjust the cams on the hook keeps.

I've tried a set of torx keys and a set of allen keys but nothing engages with the socket. Some of them look like the thread may have been stripped out, possibly by previous occupants trying the same thing.

Does anyone know if there is a standard tool and size for cam adjustment? Might it be worth purchasing new keeps?

Its normally just an Allen key but as you say those heads look a bit naff.

Do you have mushroom cams on the door edge as well as hooks? They can also be adjusted with an Allen key
