[title] Install a New Shift Cable
[* icon_caution] Before installing a new shift cable, inspect your shift housing closely. Dirty, abraded, worn, cracked, or otherwise-damaged housing should be replaced before proceeding.
[* icon_note] Make sure to use a metal pick, toothpick, or other pointy object to flare the inner sheath of your cable housing at each cut end. This will reduce friction and improve shifting.
[* black] Make sure the shifter is shifted to the '''highest gear''' (smallest cog) by pressing the small shift release lever repeatedly, then install a new cable in your shifter. Route the cable through the shift housing to the derailleur.
[* black] Route the shift cable through the derailleur and around the groove of the cable anchor washer.
[* black] Pull the cable taught, and tighten the cable anchor bolt using the 4mm hex wrench.
[* black] Remove slack from the cable by actuating the shift lever several times or pulling on exposed cable.
[* black] Resecure the shift cable by loosening the anchor bolt, then pulling the cable just taught, then re-tighten the anchor bolt. Torque the anchor bolt to '''6-7Nm'''.
[* black] Cut the cable and install a cable end crimp.
