Rear Derailuer fitting?

Hi guys,

Trying to put a Shimano Ultegra R.D. on a CAAD 9. The R.D. came off of a Motobecane Le Champion. The R.D. has a "notch" in the area that mounts up to the hanger. It's a lip sort of, that captures the edge of the hanger. It mounts fine on the Le champion, but the notch is too small to fit on the hanger of the CAAD 9. Is it necessary to have the hanger in that notch? It seems to slide around if it isn't.

Thanks!

Do you have a picture? Not really sure what you are talking about.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

So this Ultegra derailleur has a notch that's different from the b-tension screw that should interface with the tab on the hanger? Maybe a pic would be best. This derailleur functioned fine on another bike or it's new? Which model number is this Ultegra?
