Shimano Sora front derailleurs spring problem
#1
Hi. My front gear is not shifting down when the press the shift button. After careful observation, I found that the spring in the front derailleurs has lost its support. I am using Shimano Sora. The spring is not pulling the derailleur anymore, and therefore I am not able to shift down the gear.

Below is the image of my front derailleur. You can see that a portion of the support has broken.

And below is probably what it would look like if had the support. I just got it from the internet.

Any support on how to fix this spring would be much appreciated. Thanks for your help.

There is no practical way to fix this. Buy a new derailleur.

A replacement Sora FD is in the $20 to $40 range. Replacement is your only choice, if you are budget constrained take a look at the 2300 (or if triple 2303) FD; which are fine FDs.

Thanks guys for your suggestions. I guess that left me no other choice but to buy a new FD.
