My new shimano (deacth) 105 ultrega dura brake pads, maybe parts missing...

Hey guys, this days have been hard, I've spend 20 Euros on 4 brake pads and they don't get aligned, they only came with a screw and a shim, for each one of them. I have some normal shims here if it is necessary.
The brakes have something where the screw goes in that shakes and turn, the guy from deacthlon say it its for the adjustment, but i've tried to do that and nothing, the go in to the same place after I screw them totally. He gave me some grey shims 4 of them, he says they are like that. But im getting crazy and can't fix this
Please help me guys, thank you all!

These days most shoes use convex/concave paired spherical washers so the shoe can be aligned. Generally, you need 2 pairs, one between the arm and shoe, and one between the arm and mounting hardware, so that the hardware doesn't force the show square.

However, you don't always see 2 pairs of these washers, because one spherical surface can be built into the show itself, or sometimes the arm, or into the bolt or nut.

I don't know the specifics of your shoes, but look at the thee mating surfaces, (shoe, arm, nut or screw) and see if you can use the washer(s) to mate up correctly so you have adjustment float.
