Default Parking Brake Adjustment

My parking brake only works if I pull the level all the way back. I need to adjust it but when I jacked up the back and took the little rubber grommet off it just looks like a spring and not "notches" to use a screwdriver to adjust. It's a turbo with disc brakes all around. I really don't want to have to take the console out to adjust it there....any ideas? I may take a better look at it and see if I can figure it out (didn't have much light when I checked it).

The adjuster is in front of the spring, I find it easiest to shine a torch up close and look from behind from a bit of a distance but if you can see the spring ok you are almost there.
