The rear derailleur should be able to pivot on the mounting bolt and be able to spring back to its original position. But the derailleur on the bike I was working was really stiff and only pivoted back if I pushed it. So I disassembled the bit of the derailleur that held the mounting bolt and spring, did a clean, lube, and reassembled the derailleur.
