How do I adjust my new emergency (parking) brake pad shoes I just installed?

I've searched several forums and I must admit, I'm still confused about where and how to adjust my e-brake for my 2004 XC90 AWD.

I removed the driver's side carpet piece from center console and I can follow the entire brake cable from e-brake pedal all the way to where it splits into right and left cables before exiting through the transmission tunnel to the rear of the car. But I do not see any threaded connection to adjust. Where EXACTLY is this adjustment piece? Before or after the cables split?

I've also read places about a manual versus a self-adjusting emergency brake for this car. So which is it? Did it change at some model year from one to the other?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,
I suppose you've got an older car so I attached the instruction for other type of the parking brake calibration. See attachment.
Hope it helps.

Actually my XC90 is the T6 made in 2004. Does this mean the older style was more of a self-adjusting e-brake?

Because, i just kept pressing and releasing the emergency brake many times (10-15 times) and it seemed to loosen up slightly. I then drove it a bit. Initially the e-brake seemed to be hot from being engaged a bit but then it got better. Does this mean my emergency brakes readjusted themselves?
