You may have broken your derailleur cable. Your cable securing bolt on your front derailleur might have worked loose just enough for the cable to get some slack in it so that your derailleur isn't moving. Try completely loosening the cable bolt at your front derailleur. Pull on the cable and click the control to downshift to the inside crank gear . That should remove all the slack from the cable. Worse case scenario is when you pull on the cable it will completely pull out and it has broken at the shifter. You will have to replace it with a new one. If it isn't broken and you can still shift with the cable make sure your limit screw is properly adjusted for the inside crank ring and then pull all the slack out of the cable with the shifter shifted to that gear. Tighten the bolt that holds the cable in place and try the shifter again. It should now shift normally. If it doesn't you will have to take the bike in to have the shifter repaired. These shifters are not easy to repair unless you have the tools, parts and experience. Hope this helps.

Is there a spring in the Shimano 105 FD 5503 front derailler that could have gone missing?


They don't show it in the 'for after market' breakdown. It wouldn't go missing if the disassembly was no farther than they show. But it COULD break, I suppose.

Shimano 105 front shifter problem


There will be adjustment, check the front derailleur. There is a wire which is held by a pinch bolt, undo the bolt pull the wire out a little, tighten up and check the gears again. Do this until it works.

Hope this helps

log onto Shimano.com, it is probably the limit screws (the two screws that limit travel) or you have a faulty ratchet in the lever, try the shimano website anyway they have great tutorial and manual support

Shimano CI Deck plus front shifter doesn't shift properly.


Are the adjustment screws on the derailleur adjusted properly? It sounds like your not getting into the big ring.  Make sure the high limit screw is out far enough by pulling on the exposed cable after the shifter is shifted all the way. On lower end front derailleurs you will be able to see where the screw hits a stop.  On better derailleurs the screws will be labeled L or Low and H or High.
