    Shadow XT rear derailleur - play on cage

    The cage has developed a lot of play - around 1.5" of play.

    I see there is a tiny allen bolt that withdraws a link pin and allows the cage assembly to be withdrawn from the housing.

    However, I do not want to withdraw it all the way as I think the spring would unwind and I do not know the procedure to rewind it and reinsert it.

    Anyway, can anyone tell me what needs doing to fix this play? Or has something snapped internally and I must replace the whole derailleur?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ronan

    if it develops too much play you have to replace it as far as I know.....
