I've just been replacing my cassette and middle ring as per my last post (thanks chaps its fixed the jumping)
Anyway, whilst everything was in bits I gave the rest of the divetrain a clean, when I had finished I found a rubber "thing" on the floor under the rear derailler, it is a Deore LX.
It has shimano written on it and looks as if should wrap around some part of the derailler to stop muck etc getting in. Its about 2" long x 1" wide with a little rubber hook that appears to go into a hole at the other end. But for the life of me I cant see where it should go, I've tried looking on Shimano website, and other websites like CRC to see if I can find it in position but had no luck.
So I am wondering if any of you good people can shed some light on it. :?:

P.s Sorry for the rubbish explanation, I have tried taking and uploading some piccies, but im having some technical difficulties.
