    Something popped out near my chain ring when cleaning my bike

    Hi, sorry for the newbie question. I've been riding a while but usually had my brother maintain my bike I was cleaning my chain today. And a lady came to wash her car in my spot. I reacted and somehow popped open this little piece near the chain ring. It looks like I just need to connect it back to the frame somehow (no harm no foul) but I just can't figure out how to reconnect. Any help? giant tcr 1 advanced 2019 disc

    That part covers the anchor bolt and keeps the end of the derailleur cable tidy. it just snaps in but the little plastic tab that holds it seems to break easily, I can't tell if your's is broken from the pic. It's really just cosmetic, if it's broken and you can't get it back in place you could just trim the cable shorter.

    Just holds the cable out of the way. Route the cable under that little black screw sticking out the side. Then there should be a little spike that inserts into the bold holding the cable down. It should snap in place easily when you get it lined up.

    Thanks this is helpful. Seems like it's not snapping in anywhere so I probably broke the other side of the clip. I was able to tuck the cable down and make it semi secure so at least it won't affect my ride until I get it fixed. Glad to know I can still ride. Ride on!

    Reference page 21 of the dealer manual for newer Shimano derailleurs:
