Review & Install Video

What's going on guys? Adam here with, and today I'm bringing you my detailed review of the Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder fitting all 11-16 GT and V6 engines. The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder is going to be for all 11-16 GT and V6 owners who are looking to replace their old factory clutch with a new upgraded after-market clutch kit, or if you're experiencing some difficulties and wear on your current throwout bearing that are causing some issues with your gear engagement. Now, before you can look into buying a new hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder, especially like this one from Exedy, it really helps to understand its function. The hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder is a huge part of the clutch engagement. You can kind of say it's the whole heart of the operation. In a nutshell, when you press on the clutch pedal the throwout bearing presses in the pressure plates release fingers, disengaging the clutch, allowing you to change gears. You'll know it's time for a new throwout bearing or slave cylinder for your 11-16 GT or V6 when you're having trouble changing gears, if you're hearing a squealing noise coming from your transmission, or if you're noticing the one you currently have is leaking fluid or has an air leak. Another time it's highly recommended to upgrade your throwout bearing and slave cylinder is when upgrading from the OEM clutch to a new after-market clutch kit. Now at that point, you would want to upgrade to something like the Exedy throwout bearing and slave cylinder, because it's built to handle the extra force needed to operate the upgraded clutch. Now, if you decide not to upgrade your throwout bearing and slave cylinder when you upgrade to a new after-market clutch, you'll realize after a while you'll have rough clutch engagements and even eventually complete failure of your stock throwout bearing, at which point you'll have to drop your transmission and upgrade the whole new throwout bearing. The Exedy Hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder I have here today is a more heavy duty application built to handle the upgraded clutch and flywheels for your vehicle, in which case you don't have to worry about it failing with a tougher clutch applications, and overall it's more reliable part. Now, since the market isn't exactly full of hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder options, and since Exedy pretty much eats, sleeps and breathes everything clutch related, the $180 you'd be paying for this is pretty reasonable. The installation for this part is going to be pretty extensive and will require mechanical expertise. It will require you to drop the transmission, so if it's not something you're comfortable with I'd highly recommend you taking it to a professional, just to get it done safely. Now, if you are the kind of pony owner that likes to do everything hands on, you can expect to be spending a few hours doing this, especially if you decide to swap out your clutch and flywheel while you've got your trans out. It's always recommended. For this installation, swapping the hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder out with this Exedy one is only going to take a couple of minutes. It's dropping the trans that's going to be difficult and time-consuming. With that said, I definitely give it three out of three wrenches on the difficulty scale, leaving this task for one of the pros. Just to quickly wrap things up guys, if you're an 11-16 GT or V6 owner experiencing some difficulties with your throwout bearing, or if you want to just swap yours out while doing the clutch and flywheel, this here Exedy hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder is available 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 2011-2018 GT and V6 Mustangs with a Exedy or Stock Clutch installed.

    A must have product when upgrading or replacing your clutch!

    When you purchase a new replacement clutch or a high performance aftermarket clutch this is a must have product. I purchased this throwout bearing/slave cylinder for my 2011 Mustang with the Mt-82 6 speed transmission. The reason I bought this item is because I purchased a ACT twin disc clutch and light weight steel flywheel, and I wanted to ditch the stock throwout bearing/slave cylinder. I will also recomend replacing the stock pilot bearing with the Ford Racing one if your installing a new clutch and flywheel. Replacing the stock throwout/slave cylinder with this item gives you piece of mind. Alot of people forget to upgrade their throwout/slave cylinder when replacing their clutch. The quality of this product is far better than the stock one. The install of this product is super easy once you get the transmission dropped out of the car. Install time took me about 6 hours and that was replacing the clutch and flywheel as well. The part itself only took like 3 minutes to remove from the input shaft. Only 2 bolts hold it to the transmission. Before you start the install of this item make sure you crimp the clutch supply line on the master cylinder located under the hood that way you wont loose any fluid and you wont have to bleed your fluid system. You can crimp the line with a set of vise grips or a C clamp. I used a C clamp and be sure not to over tighten the line as you could damage it. After that then you can disconnect the hydraulic line to the throwout bearing. After that disconnect your battery terminals, remove the center console inside the car and unbolt the shifter assembally. Next Remove your mid pipe and unbolt and remove the drive shaft. After that unbolt and remove the starter. Next unbolt your lower shifter bracket and then support the transmission and remove the support bracket. Now your ready to start removing the transmission bolts. After that everything else is fairly straight forward. Like I said the hardest part of the install is removing the transmission. Be sure to pump your new throwout bearing and prime it once you get it on your transmission. After getting everything installed back together I have noticed a lighter and smoother pedal feel. I highly recomend this product. Ordered this part and recived it at my house in 3 days. Thanks American Muscle for the awesome customer service and fast shipping!

    It's an OEM No Improvements

    I have to say the videos on AM touted this as an upgrade to the factory unit but it is (as others have found out) the exact same unit. Not just similar but the exact same part numbers, everything there is nothing improved on this from the factory design. Sadly many have reported issues with them. I hope that is not the case for me. You can purchase these from other locations for less but I would recommend just going for the McLeod unit. I know I wish I had known that. Otherwise the unit while costing more than the McLeod seems to be at least an OEM Replacement. Hopefully it holds up, but it is not by any means better than OEM as claimed in the videos.

    Same part number

    While replacing factory clutch and flywheel with SPEC clutch/FW, i replaced the slave with a centric part. The centric slave failed within 500 miles. Replaced the broken slave with Excedy, however, noticed that it was exact same part number as the centric slave cylinder. So far the excedy part has no issues.

    Good part. But it is EXACTLY the same as stock.

    Ford contacts to Exedy for their throwout bearing/slave cylinders. This IS a Ford OEM part. The reason for the cheaper price is the middle man (Ford) is being cut out. The one you will buy from Ford is this EXACT part. So anyone thinking it's "so much different" or "wow what a difference" or "best upgrade ever" is clearly not a mechanic. You're slave cylinder was going out or worn, GUARANTEED. Any way you look at it, it is a great part and they have there stuff down pat. I have one in my car. I have an ACT 6 puck 14.4 lb Billet flywheel and 775ft lb pressure plate. Absolutely no problems with engagement or disengagement. Buy it here for less, and cut out the middle man (Ford) and save yourself a few bucks.

    Great replacement

    I purchased this with the stage 3 exedy clutch to replace my slipping stock clutch. Clutch pedal is noticeably stiffer but feels much better . Smooth engagement and you engages hard as soon as your foot leaves the floor. Exactly how it should have came from the factory. I am just past my break in period and am more than happy with the results.

    worked good for about 4 hours

    Was recommended this product to be used with my exedy stage 1 clutch and RAM aluminum flywheel, but... after installation lasted about 5 hours before failing. Dont know what failed, slave got stuck almost completely compressed when we removed it. Upgraded to RAM adjustable haven't had an issue since. Sending the product back for a refund.

    No problems here

    I decided to go ahead and replace the existing throwout bearing with this when I went through the mandatory MT82 rebuild everyone seems to be going through. I haven't had any problems with this throwout bearing, and it was cheaper than replacing it with the one Ford thought I should use.

    Exact same part as the OEM unit

    First tried the McLeod self adjusting bearing, and it was terrible. Decided to save myself the hassle and just order a new OEM replacement, and I couldn't be happier. Works well with my McLeod RST clutch. Pedal is light as a feather.

    Little unknown fact, Ford actually contracts out to Exedy to make the OEM part, however Ford will cost you way more. I would definitely recommend this part.

    Must have for the MT-82

    I had 24k on my car an 3rd gear went out. So it was time for a rebuild. And the throwout bearing was trashed. Although this looks like the stock throwout bearing. It has a different feeling to it. Smother feeling. But I did change a lot of other trans parts. Spec lightweight flywheel and stage 1 clutch. And I replaced the clutch line with the SR braided steel. And internally in the transmission I replaced all the plastic shift fork pads an stop pieces with bronze. All and all great product for the price. If the trans is out it would be unwise of you not to replace the throwout bearing with this product.
