    Deore XT Front Derailleur won't click into place

    I just installed my front derailleur but I can't get it to stay aligned with the bigger chain rings. When I go to shift it up onto a bigger chain ring the derailleur moves the chain up temporarily but the derailleur doesn't lock into place. Is it just a tension issue or is it something else?

    Derailleurs do not click into place, shifters do.

    Its likely you have the high (H) limit screw set wrong. Back it off 1/4 turn at a time and try the shift onto your big ring until the shifter can hit the 3rd get indent.
