Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m here with a very valuable upgrade for the stock or aftermarket clutch in your 2005 or newer Mustang, thanks to Exedy’s Hydralic throwout bearing and slave cylinder, fitting all manual GTs and V6s. So here’s what you need to know in a nutshell, the hydraulic throwout bearing is responsible for pushing down the little fingers here on the pressure plate, which in turn disengages the clutch and allows you to shift gears. If you’re running a stock clutch the OE cylinder should be able to do its job just fine with maybe a few exceptions due to wear and tear, however as soon as you introduce an aftermarket clutch and pressure plate with a higher pressing force, the reliability of that OE slave cylinder may come into question, due to the extra force required to operate that stronger pressure plate. This can lead to erratic gear engagement and clutch operation, and eventual failure of the slave cylinder altogether, which means you’re going to have to drop the trans to fix the issue. This hydraulic slave cylinder from Exedy has been designed to work with those stronger pressure plates, and can be used with any aftermarket or stock clutch without issue. It is just one of those peace of mind mods that is worth picking up whenever you’re installing a new aftermarket clutch, heck, I would even install this with a stock clutch just for the added strength and reliability factor. Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking the OE Ford part, but let’s be honest here, Exedy eats, sleeps and breathes clutches, it’s all they know, and it shows in the quality of their parts, Exedy recommends this product be used with all of their clutches, just to ensure reliable operation and proper engagement over time. In fact, Exedy includes this same part to be used in their Mach 600 clutch kit, just for reasons I mentioned earlier, to operate the extremely burly pressure plate included with that particular clutch. As far as install is concerned, this is ideally something you should have replaced whenever you’re replacing your clutch because the trans has to come out, because of this we’d recommend having this job tackled by your local shop, on the other hand if you are the do it yourself type, just leave yourself about 4 hours from start to finish. So if you’re looking for a little added insurance whenever you’re installing your new clutch, then be sure to check out Exedy’s hydraulic bearing and slave cylinder, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

TOB I bought a Exedy 350 Stage 1 Clutch and Exedy Fly wheel. I am geting a chirping sound now coming from the Transmission. Everything I have researched leads to this part. The clutch is about 3000miles old should I buy this TOB and install it? And would a bad TOB cause a clutch to wear out. Wondering if I should just go ahead and buy all new and reinstall.

  • Generally I would replace the throw out bearing with each clutch install. The chirping could be the bearing.

    OEM Quality

    Installed this throwout bearing / slave cylinder during a clutch install. This Exedy product seems identical to the stock throwout bearing / slave cylinder. When I purchased the product, I thought that it would be different than OEM. I am not sure that this should be considered an "upgrade" but rather a "replacement" to the OEM slave cylinder. Nevertheless, the product works great with the Exedy Mach 500 clutch.

    Perfect Replacement/Upgrade

    I have a 2008 Mustang GT/CS equipped with a Whipple H.O. Supercharger. Got 60 ,000 miles out if the stock clutch before it finally went. Slipping, chattering, noise. So I recently upgraded to an Exedy Mach 500 and couldn't be happier. My throw out bearing, needless to say, was also toast. Grease was completely dry. My repair shop was going to charge me $285 for a replacement throw out bearing so I thought I'd look around. So glad I did. Not only is this one $100 cheaper, but it's the same brand as my new clutch. nd a little technical note. This doesn't have a bleeder so after you instal it and you can't change gears, don't worry. Just pump the clutch peddle for a while. It's just an air bubble. It'll work it's way out in a couple days of city driving.

    Reliable Ford OEM+ Replacement

    I installed this guy in with my Exedy Stage 1 Clutch kit as a precaution. My original slave cylinder had apparently "exploded" according to AAMCO 3 years ago when I had no idea what to do about that, having been too afraid to work on the car myself. Well, I told them to put in higher quality parts to avoid this from happening again. I pick up the car to find out they'd seriously over clutched the car. When it started slipping after 30k miles, I decided to do it myself this time because they were obviously idiots. Long story short, (a review I'll add for the clutch itself), the slave seems to be doing its job like a champ. The only difference between the slave I bought and the one I pulled was a number printed on the side: new one said 10, old one said 8...not sure what that means... Anyhow, a word of caution though, if you are dropping the tranny yourself, don't bother trying to disconnect the slave until the tranny is partially dropped. There is NO space between the frame and the tranny to work in and the retaining clip is super easy to lose or mess up if you can't see what you are doing, and conversely make sure you reconnect BEFORE putting it back in! Rock on brothers (sisters)!

    Needed for clutch upgrade!

    It's in your best interest to replace this also while upgrading the clutch. I'd hate to see someone pay twice for labor. Feels identical to stock and I know have the peace of mind knowing it won't fail on me! Great purchase!
