Sorry, I was on my way out and was moving too fast. I was just showing that the noodle should be oriented the way it is in the pic that I found on the web. Never mind where the finger is pointing — just notice the way the parts of the brake are set in relation to each other. You’re almost there, just need to loosen the cable, reset the parts, then set cable tension and tighten. If you need more help, search for “adjust v brake” on youtube and you’ll find a lot of helpful short videos.

EDIT: To the above poster’s point, if you can’t get it set, please take it to a bike shop. The brakes are not something to mess around with.
