Question R170 foot brake lever adjustment

Hi all,

Car's a 2001 R170, 230K, auto.

I want to adjust the foot brake lever because it's far too close to me. I have to lift my foot more than an inch to reach the brake after lifting off the throttle.

I find this awkward and slow.

Does anyone know whether any adjustment is built-in? Has anyone succeeded in making non-built-in adjustment?

Thanks,

Anthony
