Please no funny remarks to subject title but think it might be.

Looking down onto the derailleur it looks like it curves up and out making the gap which the chain flows through seem quite large. Having trouble changing the front derailleur too, as its very hard to go down onto the bottom ring.

Any thoughts, Ta

    Happened to my 105 front mech within 2-3 weeks of being new. A gentle squueze with a pair of pliers sorted it.
