Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
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.

Look for screw (starred? HEX?) on back side which loosens or tightens the center piston. It could be hidding behind another 'cap' screw. Don't even try C-clamps !
