    Is it loose if you try to wiggle it?

    If you are talking about the hanger, you would need to get a better shot/angle of it from slightly further back.

    Need a shot from directly behind the bike and further back to get a better take on it. Thanks!

    I noticed the same thing on my Guardian yesterday. Where the RD mounts to the hanger is loose. It's a 5mm allen bolt I think, tighten it up. Mine was loose, causing bad shifts

    well...I guess something wrong with the thread on hanger.
    bolt tightening go well for 2/3 but no good for last couple of turns.
    it looks like stripped or mis screwed so RD hanging tilted.
    I don't know what happened but...I guess it tightened wrong.
    Anyway I placed an order for extra hanger

    I can't tell completely from the photo, but it looks like it is aligned vertically OK but that it is off in the horizontal plane due to the RD hanger threads being stripped (?).

    If that's the case a new RD hanger should definitely help.

    I've had the cir-clip that holds the b-adjustment stop come loose more than one SRAM derailleur. I can't tell for sure from the picture, but it certainly looks like that's a possibility. It's fairly easy to fix but be careful removing or install the cir-clip. They like to fly across the garage and hide.

    Is it an issue if you no longer use the cir clip? Mine popped off and I just left it off. Thought it was just to hold the 5mm bolt to the derailleur.

    You're probably right, but that would sent my OCD into orbit
