    Why did you replace the gear hanger ?

    Could it be related ? Or have you bent the axle someone ? That would make it harder to get in and out ?

    The mech hanger on thru-axle bikes usually contains a thread for the qr to wind into. Try to isolate the issue further, by removing the wheel, then fitting the qr into the frame without the wheel in place. Also try fitting the qr through the wheel when it is out. That should help identify where the problem is...

    actually ,, i was inspecting my bike ,, found the one of the hangers isn't tighten fully (not the one holding the derailleur)

    but there was no issue while i riding the bike even for high speed

    i just asked a mechanical, he just said this hanger must be tighten fully , so it won't affect the frame

    when we just tighten the hanger, it became hard for the axle to tight in/out

    so now i'm confused whither to loosen the hanger's bolt or i don't know what to do
