    Something fell out of my front derailleur

    Just bought a new MTB which apparently needs some adjustment to the derailleurs. While trying to set the front derailleur height, a tiny metal rod fell out of it. It's about 1mm thick and 1½cm long, no threading or anything. The derailleur is an SRAM 3.0. The bike was upside down when the rod fell out. What is this rod and where does it go?

    Thankful for help!

    Here's a picture of the rod next to a lighter for size comparison:

    I've never used a SRAM FD. Can you take a picture of that too?
