Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with, 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

Reliable. When upgrading to handle more power people will replace their clutch and flywheel, but will often forget to upgrade their stock Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and this can cause serious problems with gear engagement. So upgrade to the new Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder for reliability.

Installation Note. Exedy's Hydraulic Slave Cylinder will require to be bench bleed before installation for proper operation. Complete instructions on the bleeding procedure are included.

Application. The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder is specifically designed for use in the 2005-2010 GT and V6 Mustangs with a Exedy or Stock Clutch installed.

I am converting my '07 GT TR3650 to a TR6060 already have an Excedy T/O bearing in the TR3650. Will this work throw out bearing work with the TR6060? I confirmed the disc, flywheel pressure plate are all compatible with Excedy, just need to know if I need to order another T/O bearing.


  • Since the TR6060 is the transmission from a different vehicle we would not be able to confirm fitment as this is a heavier modification as it will include different car makes.

    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)!

    Smoother operation than stock.

    Easy installation. Very smooth operation. However, a real pain to bleed and get out all the air bubbles. Be sure to use the correct grease on the input shaft sleeve. It needs to survive for the life of the clutch. Grease that hardens after a few years will have you taking it apart again. I like the smooth release action and feel of the clutch.

    With and without the HD throwout part

    The dealer put in a new Exedy 500 clutch and flywheel but forgot about the new throwout bearing. The new clutch required considerable effort to engage, like plus 50 over stock. We did take it apart again and put the HD throwout in. Now the clutch/flywheel/HDthrowout effort is about the same as stock effort. Very smooth!!. Also put in the stainless hydraulic line and roller pilot bearing this time around. Btw I am running a 550 HP Whipple.

    2008 S197 clutch replacement

    Purchased the Exedy clutch Stage I, light weight flywheel, slave cylinder and SR braided fluid line. TEPA Auto Motors did the install and its working great. This is my 4th clutch in the 6 years, bought it new. Sure hope I have finally found the correct combination. My car has a few mods - BBK cold air and 62mm throttle body, MSD coil packs, SCT tune. Eibach suspension springs, shocks, struts, sway bars, mounts and rear lower control arms. TSW Snetterton wheels 20X9F 20X10R w/255/35 F 275/35 R. 3.55 gears JBA shorty headers. A few things to go,, need to replace the struts and shock. While it tracks and sticks very well, no confidence because of the pogo motion that takes over as soon as you hit a bump, dip or a slight rut in the road. I've never yet run out of brakes although I can tell by the feel if I were to get aggressive with repeated stopping the stock brakes will quickly show their inadequacy. And I definite need more power. Got the need for speed in my blood. Gerald

    Worked as described

    The only issue that I had was that the hard line had to be bent/adjusted some to get an exact fit and especially to have the quick connect nipple in the right place to make a positive connection once installed. Make sure you have this right or you will be pulling the trans out again.
