Default handbrake help, no adjuster on bullitt?

hi everyone, i got under my car today to adjust my handbrake but there are no adjuster nuts on any of my brake cables, it a 2001 bullitt and i can't see how your supposed to do it,

also while i was under there i noticed that my car has an aluminium prop shaft with 5.3 stamped on it is this standard, because it seems like it would be steel usually

thanks guys

There's no adjuster on any SN95. It's a common misconception due to the way it "Looks" under the car. You'll need to buy a new cable.

I recently replaced the cable from my hand-brake to the calipers. It's extremely Simple if you have a decent enough hoist.

If not, it's still simple.. If you're able to manipulate your body somewhat as though you're a reptile.
