SRAM Red RD Spring Replacement

Hey all,

On a ride this weekend I heard a snap and my RD was useless. No tension, so could shift up the cassette fine, but not down. When I got home I confirmed my suspicion that the return spring was busted. From what I could find online it seems like they aren’t replaceable on a Red22 RD and I’ll need to replace the whole thing.

Anyone had any luck replacing it? Doing it themselves? LBS? SRAM support?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Chad, this is pretty much what I read. All the posts seem to be fairly old, so was hoping (with little actual hope) that something changed in the past few years (bike is '16 Cannondale)

Copy that. Wasn’t sure how similar or different they were.

doesn’t appear to be a part you can order based on the catalog: https://www.servicearchive.sram.com/sites/default/files/techdocs/2020_sram_spc_-_rolling_rev_i.pdf
