I have found these for Ultegra and 105, but I'm looking for a rear derailleur cable anchor bolt washer (the one with the little tab) for my Dura Ace 7800. The size is unique to 7800 DA. I broke the tab off of mine.
Does anyone know a place online where I can find one? I am over 50 miles from my nearest LBS and I'm six days from being able to go there -- if THEY even have it.
Thanks in advance.

you can just use any washer that ill fit on the bolt to hold you over in the meantime
ebay maybe though?

It's not the kind of part any LBS is likely to have. Try contacting Shimano America directly :
Shimano American Corp.
Irvine, CA 92618
They may be willing to send you one at no cost.
Then too, if you keep the groove for the cable wire oriented properly, the tab isn't needed so you can use your derailleur without it.

Thanks for the quick replies. The ones on ebay won't work. I'm using the tab-less washer as a temporary fix. I'll have to try Shimano USA.
