    Sram X9 Missing Anchor Bolt Problem

    I got a problem with my rear derailleur - SRAM X9 medium cage. Manual shows a derailleur with the anchor bolt in it's very obvious spot (red circle below) while mine is like the 2nd picture ... WTF sram? did anybody have that issue before ?

    It just looks like they moved the anchor position from the bottom to the top of the cage. The anchor bolt should be on the same side as that plastic cable guide right?

    I will take a photo tonight ... but no, there is no bolt (at least a obvious looking one) on the inside where the cable would fasten to

    Look at this document: It looks like your routing should be similar to the XX/XO derailleur routing diagram. (I think your anchor bolt is on the top of your cage, but the head of the bolt is facing down, ie, inside the cage rather on top).

    smilingsteve is correct. The X9 RD had a cable anchor location change 2 years ago IIRC.
