Right... the end is in sight. This should be my last question! :D

I'm fitting the front derailleur (XTR M986 dual pull) and can't decide how the cable should be secured. In the instructions and any online videos/diagrams, the fixing bolt is at the front. However, on mine it is at the side. Can anyone advise how the cable should be secured? I've put pictures of two possible ways below.

Initially I thought picture 1 looked correct, but when I trim the cable isn't it then going to be hanging inside the derailleur plates, getting in the way of the chain? :?
