Quick question I hope! I'm building a new DA equiped bike. The cap on top of the front derailleur keeps popping off! This is really annoying. Is there a trick, do you glue it?

Cheers, Tim

Daft question, but is the cable wrapped properly around the derailleur? I have the ultegra version and is perfect.

If in doubt, check this out

Check out this video that I used when installing and fine tuning the 9100 FD. Once it’s dialled it works amazing well.

In my experience the plastic cover stays in place once you’ve routed the cabling.

Thanks for the video, I didn't have the cable routed properly so after fixing that it's now fine. :)
