Hi,

My rear deraillieur cage isnt moving freely on the pivot. I had this 20k km's ago. Took it all apart of the tension spring was a mess. Could never get it sorted, so replaced the deraillieur, now the new one has new one has the same issue.

Is it possible to replace just the spring?

Thanks

oh....Ultegra DI 11speed. Don't know the code!

Many thanks

    The spring is likely fine - it just gets all gunked up. A good clean and new grease will probably have it working as well as new :)
    FFS! Harden up and grow a pair :D

    I tried that myself the first time round, could never get it working properly. Its now at the shop, see what they think.

    Plan to work on the second one myself once the first is back.

    ****thanks for the link also, perfect.
