Is there an adjustment on '90 500SL transmission?

It feels as if it's shifting later when warmed, enough to jolt the car hard sometimes. Is it vacuum or electonic controlled? Thanks in advance, as I did not find answer using search.

The firmness of the shift is controlled by the modulator that is adjustable from the bottom of the car on the side of the tranny.
The RPM that the tranny shifts at is adjustable from the bowden cable located behind the air cleaner.
