    Shifter problem

    So I stupidly disassembled my front Shimano Deore shifter, and the circular spring popped out and I have no idea how to get it to fit. Looking at the other shifter I can figure how it should go, but it won't coil without not wanting to fit.

    Can anyone help at all?

    hmm i really have no idea what you are talking about, but maybe try putting the spring in with your shifter in the lowest/ highest gear. With any luck it will pop on in.

    Take that shifter and throw it in the garbage. Then buy a new one. Never take one apart...it is like a can of worms...like you have found out. When they wear out, they are done. Just replace it.
