Shifter wont click
#1
I have a 2012 Sram Red Groupset. I was replacing the cable for the front derailleur yesterday and i must have done something because now its fucked. Now when I put the cable in and attach it to the front derailleur it will not click into the correct position. The front derailleur will still move up onto the larger ring but after I take my finger off the lever it goes back into the smaller ring. Does anybody have any experience with this? what happened? adn how do I fix this?

Pictures?

A couple of possibilities: cable is not properly routed at the FD, the cable length is a fraction to short. There are probably other possibilities, pictures would help.
