Thanks for the write up.
I know this is a rather late addition to an older post, but I have a note to add that may help some folks. (I acquired my volvo in May of 2019)
On my 1999 V70 XC AWD, there is no dedicated adjuster hole to access the toothed adjustment wheel. Instead access is via the lug bolt holes. The adjuster wheel is not at the 12 O'clock position. On the passeger side, the adjuster wheel is at about the 3 O'clock position. On the driver side, it is at about 6:30 to 7 O'clock position.

That’s a bit bizarre, as the design I’ve seen on my 1999 FWD has the two adjuster wheels only about 5 cm apart on a common tube. Is the AWD parking brake setup different in are there funky parts here?

I don't remember where the adjustment cylinders were on mine, but I believe they were still at the 12:00 position on my car. There are not pass through adjustment holes on the rotors though, you need to remove them to adjust the cylinders.
