    Hi,

    I’m trying to replace the gear cable on an old mountain bike, 90’s thumb shift shimano type things.

    I replaced the old cable and it seemed to go ok, but when I move the shifter I can see the derailer move, but the shifter doesnt click and as soon as I let go of the shifter it returns to its original position?

    I’ve obviously done something wrong, any ideas as I’m a bit lost?

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Did you dismantle the shifter to install the cable, sounds like the internal spring has popped out of its locator.
