Shimano FD-R453 Front Derailleur Service Instructions
General Safety Information
The level section of the chain guide outer plate should be
directly above and parallel to the largest chainring.
Secure using a 5mm Allen key.

WARNING
• Obtain and read the service instructions carefully prior to installing the parts.
Loose, worn, or damaged parts may cause injury to the rider.
We strongly recommend only using genuine Shimano replacement parts.
• Be careful not to let the cuffs of your clothes get caught in the chain while riding,
otherwise you may fall off the bicycle.
• Read these Technical Service Instructions carefully, and keep them in a safe
place for later reference.

4. Cable adjustment using the intermediate chainring
When making the cable adjustment, place the chain on the largest
sprocket for the rear and the middle chainring for the front.
Note: There are 2 derailleur positions for the intermediate chainring. When
making the cable adjustment, make sure that the derailleur is in the
inner side (toward small chainring) of the two positions. Locate the
derailleur to this position by shifting from the largest to the
intermediate chainring (recommended) or by shifting from the small to
the intermediate chainring, then gently press lever (B) until a small
click is felt (to position the derailleur to the inner side of the
intermediate chainring).

Note
• If gear shifting operations cannot be carried out smoothly, clean the derailleur and
lubricate all moving parts.
• If the amount of looseness in the links is so great that adjustment is not possible,
you should replace the derailleur.
• When the chain is in the position shown in the illustration, the chain may contact
the front chainrings or front derailleur and generate noise.
If the noise is a problem, shift the chain
onto the next-larger rear sprocket or the
Front
one after.

SIS adjustment
Both lever (A) and lever (B) always return to the initial position when they are released
after shifting.
When operating one of the levers, always be sure to turn the crank arm at the same time.

Adjustment point
Be sure to follow the sequence described below.
1. Low adjustment
First remove the Pro-Set alignment block. Next, set so
that the clearance between the chain guide inner plate
and the chain is 0 - 0.5mm.
Lever (A) initial position
When lever (A) is pressed once, there is a shift of one step from
a small chainring to a larger chainring.

Adjust the cable tension by using the outer adjustment barrel so that
the clearance between the chain guide inner plate and the chain is 0 0.5 mm.

Example:
from intermediate chainring
to largest chainring.
• For smooth operation, use the specified outer casing and the bottom bracket
cable guide.
• Grease the inner cable and the inside of the outer casing before use to ensure
that they slide properly.
• This front derailleur is for triple front chainwheel use only. It cannot be used with
the double front chainwheel, as the shifting points do not match.
• For the chain, be sure to use only the Shimano super-narrow type of chain. The
wide type of chain cannot be used.
• Parts are not guaranteed against natural wear or deterioration resulting from
normal use.
• For maximum performance we highly recommend Shimano lubricants and
maintenance products.
• For any questions regarding methods of installation, adjustment, maintenance or
operation, please contact a professional bicycle dealer.

5. Trimming mechanism adjustment and checking
Example:
from largest chainring
to intermediate chainring.
While turning the crank arm, gently operate lever (B) and check that
the front derailleur moves slightly toward the smallest chainring. If the
front derailleur moves by a large amount and the chain is set onto the
smallest chainring at this time, loosen the top adjustment bolt by 1/8th
of a turn. Then, after returning the
chain to its original position, adjust
and check the trimming mechanism.

Lever (B)
When lever (B) is operated, there is one click
where trimming (the noise prevention
mechanism) engages, and a second stronger
click when the gear shift stroke is completed.
After trimming, the next push will complete the
gear shift stroke.

2. Connection and securing of cable
While pulling the inner cable, tighten the wire fixing
bolt with a 5 mm allen key to secure the cable.

Front derailleur
Rear derailleur
If the chain is on the large front chainwheel and the larger rear
sprocket, the chain will rub in the front derailleur plate,
producing a characteristic noise. When this happens, press
lever (B) lightly (to the point where it clicks); this causes the
front derailleur to move slightly towards the smaller chainwheel,
thereby eliminating the noise.
Set so that the clearance between the chain guide
outer plate and the chain is 0 - 0.5 mm.

After completion of steps 1 - 5, move the shifting lever to check the
shifting. (This also applies if shifting becomes difficult during use.)
If the chain falls to the crank side
Tighten the top adjustment screw
clockwise (about 1/4 turn).
If shifting is difficult from the intermediate
chainring to the largest chainring
Loosen the top adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If shifting is difficult from the intermediate
chainring to the smallest chainring
Loosen the low adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If there is interference between the chain
and the front derailleur outer plate at the
largest chainring
Loosen the top adjustment screw
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If the intermediate chainring is skipped
when shifting from the largest chainring
Loosen the outer casing adjustment
barrel counterclockwise (1 or 2 turns).
If there is interference between the chain
and front derailleur inner plate when the
rear sprocket is shifted to the largest
sprocket when the chainwheel is at the
intermediate chainring position.
Tighten the outer casing adjustment
barrel clockwise (1 or 2 turns).
If the chain falls to the bottom bracket
side.
Tighten the low adjustment screw
clockwise (about 1/8 turn).
If there is interference between the chain Loosen the low adjustment screw
and the front derailleur inner plate when
counterclockwise (about 1/8 turn).
