There should be a rubber insert in the back of the wheel assembely,take it out and you can adjust the brake tighter or looser by turning the adjusting wheel

There is an adjuster, just not a normal one(it's a VW!). It's a small, flat, wedged pin, about 1.5" - 2" long, sitting vertically behind the shoe opposite the parking brake lever, attached to the only vertical spring in the assembly. In addition, you could try getting a round file and removing some of the material from the inside edge of the drum.
