    So the McLeod unit that we have here today is going to be a great option for the Mustang owner out there that's in the process of doing a clutch and flywheel, and needs to replace their factory throwout bearing. I say this because, if you're doing a clutch and flywheel, you really should just do the slave at the same time, because everything is going to be wide open. It'd be a shame to tear everything back out a few thousand miles later, just to replace the part you could've hit from the get-go. Now, if you were to keep your original bearing in there, you're risking running into issues with your clutch engaging, shifting gears, and wearing out your new clutch quickly. In my opinion, it's really just not worth the risk. But despite its size, I am going to be giving this a full three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about a four-hour job. I'll have a little bit more information on that coming up for you later. So unlike a lot of the other more pricier options out there, this is a direct OE replacement, meaning there's no adjustability or features, and meaning that it'll come along with a lighter price tag and no guesswork when it comes time to throwing it in. So we explain why you should pick this up when you're doing your clutch, but factory throwout bearings can go out on their own too. Some symptoms are going to be grinding between shifts, rattling underneath the box, whining or squeaking when you're in gear, with the clutch out, or at idle, or just a sloppy pedal feel. Now, if this sounds like your Mustang right now, it's definitely time to look at replacing your clutch and bearing. This direct-fit, OE replacement features a factory-style wire clip connector and is made to the original factory specs, with premium quality rubber components for compatibility with all DOT 3 and 4 fluids. Now, it's worth pointing out that this is designed to work with any McLeod unit, but it will work with any other brand or a stock clutch. But in terms of the pricing here, expect to be spending just over $100, which is a small price to pay to guarantee that you're getting direct engagement and disengagement out of hard driving with any aftermarket clutch. Now, if you're doing a clutch job and need an adjustable throwout bearing and slave cylinder, McLeod does have one. But it will cost around $400. The differences aside from the adjustability will be the construction, where that unit is going to be anodized. So switching gears to the installation, you're looking at an involved three out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and easily a four-hour job. Now, this is honestly something I would take to a shop to get installed, given the amount of labor that's involved here. There's really no shame in having the pros do the work to ensure that you're not going to run into any issues down the road. But the majority of the work is really going to be dropping your trans, and then swapping everything over. So that's going to wrap up my quick review of McLeod's stock-style hydraulic throwout bearing, that can be found right here at

    Dependability. Whether your Mustang is a daily driver, a beast on the track or screams down the drag strip, you depend on you car to shift smoothly at all times. This process requires your throwout bearing to function correctly. If you're experiencing issues, you should replace your stock throwout bearing with this McLeod Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing.

    Direct Replacement. This Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing features a factory style wire-clip connector that makes it a direct fit OE replacement of your factory throwout bearing. McLeod constructs their Throwout Bearing to the original factory specifications with premium quality rubber components to be compatible with all DOT 3 and 4 Brake Fluids.

    Application. This McLeod Stock Style Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is designed to fit the 2005-2017 GT, 2005-2012 V6 and 2007-2009 Shelby GT500 Mustangs.

    Application Note. This McLeod Hydraulic Throwout Bearing is designed to work with a factory clutch installed or any clutches with the original factory specifications.

            Definitely an Upgrade

            My original throw out bearing failed and I needed to get it replaced. It is so much lighter than the original piece. Had it on the car for over a month now and no issues. Had shop install.

            Installed this unit with my new McLeod clutch. Well less then 6 months later thought my trani was leaking ...... nope the throwout bearing is bad. So more than $400 in labor later I have a new throwout bearing installed and this company won’t warranty the defective unit. So in short don’t buy it.

            DOES NOT FIT

            In 2017, I bought a clutch kit and all the necessary piece for my 2014 Mustang GT. American Muscle's website said everything will fit properly in my car. Here I am, a year and a half down the road, my car is having issues shifting so I unfortunately had to take it to a shop. The shop told me that the hydraulic throwout bearing that I bought is not supposed to be in my car and that it is THE WRONG PART. I call AM to see if they're willing to help a loyal customer out with the misinformation that AM has provided me and all the representative said is that the order is too old for them to do anything. 2nd major issue that I've had with AM over the last year which is unfortunate, I thought they were the best place to go for anything Mustang. **If you are buying this part, don't trust the fitment guide on AM, call Ford and get the right part number first

            Failed in 2000 miles

            Professionally installed with a new McLeod Clutch and flywheel. During break in, noticed some shudder when launching and post break in it got worse. By 1000 miles on the part it was making a pile of noise. After discussion with McLeod they advised it can happen, but its rare. Yeah, I won the lottery. Had to buy another one and send in failed part to receive a refund which has not come yet. Note, trans has to come out to install so now I get to pay again to have it installed because I don’t have a lift and pulling the trans on jack stands is no fun.

            I had chatter from my throwout on start so when I switched my clutch I added this as well. Issue solved and clutch feels great. Shop that did the install said it was a nice part.

            Once its installed start leaking . Endup paying double labor. Further endup buying another hydraulic throwout bearing from Ford Dealership for my 2006 GT. Since I return the defective still waiting for replacement.

            Worked well while it worked!

            Less than 1000 miles and boom, pedal to the floor and fluid dripping under car. Don’t buy this product. My car is currently sitting on a trailer waiting for a new OEM throwout bearing. Kinda sucks to have to pull the transmission because this component failed. No drag racing on this part. I was actually doing less than 30 mph in traffic when it let go.

            Works great so far

            Very easy, smooth clutch depression. In my hands, it felt noticeably higher in quality compared to the stock one. Clutch job at 97k. Mated to a stock resurfaced flywheel and an Exedy Mach 400 clutch kit. For being the cheapest out of the brands at the time of purchase... it sure doesn't feel like it.
