Meike 6.5mm flange distance adjustment?

I just got a Meike 6.5mm lens I'd ordered back in January... Brazilian customs are chaotic these days, and I really don't want to have to send it back...

The issue is the flange distance, I got the M43 version for my Panasonic GX80, and it is grossly misadjusted: infinity seems to be set at the 30cm markings on the lens, and close focus is way farther than it should be (the lens has 20cm markings but at that position, it will focus only as close as 40cm). If I put the lens at the ∞ mark, everything is out of focus.

Does anyone know how to adjust the flange distance of this lens?

It has philips screws on the back:

Thanks in advance!
