Probably not. Those are not the typical adjustment points. It more likely a matter of loosening a trans-torque bushing so it can be repositioned - depends on the type of slide.

The all-threads act as a limiter, not a drive mechanism. You'll have to adjust the slide per the instructions R.Wold linked. Breaking the transtorque bushing loose will be the most challenging thing, don't ask me now I know.

I followed those instructions and it went well my first time with the exception that I bumped my head on the compartment door, causing it to drop down on me where upon I quickly reached up to stop it while holding the wrench and hit myself in the mouth with that nice new and really long 1 1/2” end wrench. Other than another broken tooth, it was textbook..

As said torque bushings need to be released and slide pushed in and bushings re-tightened, this thread covers all slides.
This thread covers everything else.
