    XTR derailleur plastic cable guide thingy

    I am installing a M9000 derailleur and it has a little plastic whiz-bang that sets in the cable hole at the bottom of the cable housing stop. It might be some sort of guide or tiny t-bushing to keep the cable from dragging on the metal hole. I don't remember seeing this on other derailleurs, and of course the instructions are no good. Should I keep it or chuck it?

    It's something like a thingamajig - only larger.

    Try the Shimano Dealer's Manual - Shifting Lever Rapidfire Plus 11-speed.

    Their generalized picture shows a "Sealed outer cap (resin type)"
