• I'm supposed to be doing the Two Ton tour tomorrow so thought I'd squeeze in time to replace the cables on my Shimano Ultegra 6700 groupset.

    As I peeled back the lever hoods I noticed that the screws that held the inner door on the left-hand shifter were loose and as the hood was rolled back, the door jettisoned off onto the floor. As it did this the little silver tab popped out of position and now will not go back in. Later on, the small spring also fell out.

    After some google and shimano manual searching, I have found nothing helpful. The exploded view for the shifters from shimano is not detailed enough for this part of the shifter!

    Any help would be really appreciated as at this rate I will not be attending the Two Ton Tour!

  • YouTube video which may assist

  • Hi
    I have the same problem with the shimano 6700 left shifter , did you find a solution ?

    Ride it in the little ring. They'll love you for that!

    But SRS I think you're on a bit of a rebuild journey. Probably cheaper (depending on how you value your own time) to get a new one.

  • Reawakening an old thread just to record that the exact same thing happened to my 6700 left hand shifter this weekend. I believe it's the silver tab that was pushed out of position and caused the door to be pushed off - neither of the springs that came out were under much tension. Anyhow, I also found nothing useful on the internet and my poking about was fruitless. Gave up and put an old downtube shifter on so I could get out riding yesterday. I don't think it will be fixed, so will look out for an affordable replacement but more likely just re-adapt to the downtube shifter in the meantime.

  • I’ll throw my hat in here too, exact same problem... another shout out, anyone found the issue before I tear it down?
