Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with here with a must have upgrade for any stock or modified S197. I’m referring to the SR Performance braided stainless steel hydraulic clutch line, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. SR Performance has really made a name for themselves in the aftermarket Mustang world thanks to their wide variety of high quality performance and suspension components, that fit nicely into just about anyone’s budget. To keep tabs on the rest of the SR Performance line up, you just have to subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking on the link below or on the AM logo in the corner at any point during this video. Alright, so let’s explain why you might need something like this, well, the factory clutch line in all 2005 and newer manual Mustangs is made out of a hard plastic material, and like any plastic it has to swell under pressure, especially when things get hot under the engine bay. Any swelling or distortion of that factory plastic line can lead to a lack of pressure at the slave cylinder, resulting in inconsistent shifts, pedal engagement, especially when you’re trying to bang gears quickly like at the track for instance. By going with a Teflon line, braided stainless hose like this SR Performance hose here, you’re never going to have to worry about the line swelling, cracking or melting like you would with the plastic line. In addition the clutch pedal feel should improve greatly and just feel more smooth and responsive overall. Some folks have said that by switching to a stainless line, this helped take some of the notchiness out of their shifter, while other Mustang owners have said that installing a stainless line helps the pedal engage a little higher off the floor, meaning you’re not going to have to press the clutch pedal down all the way to shift gears anymore. If you want to learn more about what people are saying about the SR Performance clutch line, and you’re not already watching this video on our site, just click on the link below to head back to our product page over at Removing the factory line and installing the new stainless line will require some work in the engine bay and underneath the car in addition to reaching into some pretty tight spots. Because of this the install can be a little tricky especially if you have big hands like myself, but you can expect to spend about 2 hours getting the job done. Once the line is installed just check your brake fluid levels, you might end up losing a few ounces removing the factory line. You will notice the SR Performance line does not have a bleeder on it, so that means you’re going to have to bleed the system before going for a spin. To do this you need to pump the clutch pedal a number of times, some people have said it takes close to a hundred times before you get your pedal back fully. So once you have your pedal back, go take it for a spin around the neighborhood first just to make sure the car shifts smoothly. That’s pretty much it man but if you should have any questions just give us a call at 855-422-7439, or shoot us an email at So if you’re looking to replace that weak factory plastic clutch line in your 2005 and newer Mustang with a quality stainless piece, then be sure to check out this budget friendly option from SR Performance, available right here at

Performance Upgrade. Manual Mustangs came from the factory equipped with a plastic Clutch Fluid Line which is fine for leisurely Sunday driving, but can split or fail under the high heat and additional pressure caused by aggressive driving. So replace that weak factory plastic line with a SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line for improved clutch pedal feel and peace of mind.

Superior Quality. The SR Performance Clutch Fluid Line features a Teflon hose that is encased in a braided stainless steel covering. The inner Teflon hose resist expansion under pressure while the braided stainless steel covering provides additional reinforcement against expansion as well as protection from abrasion and road debris.

Application. This SR Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Fluid Line is designed to be a direct fit replacement upgrade for the 2005-2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models equipped with a manual transmission.

The fittings didn't come attached. Do they need plumbers pipe tape when attaching to braided line connector?


  • Plumbers tape, or Teflon tape, should not be used in this application, as brake fluid will dissolve Teflon tapes. These fittings should seal without the use of teflon tape.

Hi, I was told that the fitting on this line has a bigger hole than the one on the stock line. Because of that, by replacing the stock line with this line, will I be applying more than required pressure on the slave cylinder and end up breaking it? Will it be necessary to somehow adjust the clutch pedal after installation to reduce the travel distance?

    Great quality and perfect fit!

    The braided stainless clutch line is definitely a must for anyone with a manual transmission that utilizes the low quality plastic line. The fit is perfect and the quality is great. Not sure about the 05-10's but on the 11+'s, the clutch is self bleeding but you have to pump the pedal a ridiculous number of times (100+). Also make sure you have some Dot3/4 fluid to top off the reservoir with.

    Highly recommed this part!

    I had been having intermittent problems moving the shifter from neutral into 1st or reverse. Sometimes having to pump the clutch multiple times in order to get it in gear. Replacing the stock line with this part seems to have corrected this issue. My recommendation is to use a pick to remove the clips holding the line at the 90 degree elbow on the transmission and the firewall connection. Connect the new line at the firewall junction and fish it down to the transmission roughly following the old lines path. I was able to securely zip tie the line to the brake lines under the master cylinder and to the AC line behind the motor away from the engine and exhaust manifolds. Using a piece of hose over the line to prevent it from rubbing the firewall. It was a straight shot to the transmission. I then connected the elbow to the line and reconnected it to the transmission. Be very careful with the clips, if you lose one you may have to end up ordering a stock replacement line as the clips are not available separately. (You could get by in a pinch using a paperclip, but I wouldn't trust it for anything more than holding the line in place while bleeding the air out of the system.) Perhaps in the future SR could source clips for the lines and include a few with the hose.

    nice line

    I have put a few miles on the car since the install. The clutch seems to engage and disengage a little further up off the floor. Haven't really noticed anything as far as performance goes, other than having the confidence the line won't break or swell anytime soon. On the install, I connected the bottom end to the tranny first, then used a syringe to top fill the line with fluid. Avoided having the pump the clutch a thousand times. Install took about 30 min. Still had to pump the clutch a little bit tho to get it back fully.

    better performance than expected.

    I have a 2006 gt with whipple supercharger and spec stage 3+. Adding this line has made the clutch more streetable. It actually engages smoother now, less chatter if you don't do it just right. Well worth the money. A bit of a pain to get to. I actually dropped the stock H pipe to get the cats out of the way and took the 90 degree elbow off with the stock line. Much easier to put the line in the elbow, then put the elbow back on..

    Great product

    Cable went on in about 20 to 30 mins on a lift very hard to reach the 90 degree on the trans side fire wall not so bad. Let the exhaust cool down cause your hands are going to be right up against the converter. I use so long needle nose pliers with a 90 degree bend made the job easier just be careful with the small clips. As far as bleeding the clutch it wasn't that bad on my 2012. Had to start off with using my hand make sure you have fluid to add as you pump eventually you can use your foot after you get some pedal back. Try to have a friend help it will go alot smoother.

    My mechanic called to tell me that the braided line is leaking at the firewall where the line connects to the coupler. I had no choice but to tell him to reinstall the plastic factory line so as not to hold up the completion of the repairs. Very disappointing.

    A must have

    Found this product easy to install, with the only difficult part of the installation being removing the retaining clip from the lower connection where the fitting connects to the slave cylinder. Using a small pick or even a nail with the tip bent 90 degrees makes it so much easier. I connected the bottom first and then filled the hose from the top and let it gravity bleed the air out (took about 15 minutes). I found the retaining clips went in far easier if once the hose was all the way in, pull it back out just slightly and the clip will find the groove in the hose a little easier. Next, made the top connection and then used Ford's method of applying vacuum to the master cylinder reservoir which pulled all the air out of the rest of the system. Pedal now feels much firmer and more accurate.

    The clutch pedal feel and engagement is tighter leading to more positive shifts. When connecting to the slave cylinder it is a tight fit. But I the end well worth it wither its track or daily driver.

    Really Surprised by improvement in clutch

    I just installed the line and went on a test ride. The difference was amazing. The job took 1 hour and 20 minutes start to finish with about 175 pumps to bleed off the air in the line. The trans now shifts smooth and the old notch-e-ness is gone. I run my car at the strip and can't wait for the weather to break. Previous best was 11.84 at 120 on stock exhaust and stock air box, I'm expecting that to change. Thanks to everyone involved with getting this part to my door. All the best, Keith.

    Watch out for those O-Rings

    I was excited to receive this clutch line to replace my stock line, but when i removed the stock line and went to install this it wouldn't go in to the clutch line in the firewall. When i looked closer at the fittings i noticed the O-rings on the SR line were slightly larger than the ones on the stock line, preventing me from pushing the SR line in no matter how hard i tried. So using the small pick tool that i used to remove the retaining clips to release the stock line from the firewall, i removed the o-rings from the stock line and put them on the SR line and bam! it fit perfectly. No leaks and works way better than stock. I just wish that something as crucial and small as the o-ring size was looked at when this product was shipped out. The o-rings that came on the SR clutch line fittings just didn't look like they were quality, and the size difference from the stock o-rings were crazy. PRO-TIP: to save yourself some headache, reinstall the small metal retaining clips after removing the stock line, this way when you install the new line, it will just click right into place :)

    fit and finish was fine. Would be good to have them include the two clips with the line, since you can't get these by themselves from Ford (according to my local dealer). Dropped one clip and took a day to find it!

    Worthwhile Upgrade

    I worried about this install for a week, however when it came time to do it I was very pleasantly surprised. With the car on ramps I found more than enough room to work on the lower part of the cluth line. I have a V6 and it may be different with the V8 models, however total time for this install was 15 minutes (even with my limited mechanical ability). I've always had a slight nibble going 1st-to-2nd until I read that you need to fully depress the clutch when shifting. After install, that nibble is virtually gone. The SR Performance Braided Clutch Line is a quality piece that should be on your list.

    Great Product

    Since I was going to replace my clutch and flywheel I decided that it would be smart to replace the clutch line since it's right there. Installation is pretty straight forward and can be done in an hour or less depending on how you approach it. The only problem I had while installing it was I had put the clip (to hold the line end in place) on backwards and kept popping the line off when I tried to bleed the clutch. Once that was fixed, it was smooth sailing. Bleeding the line took forever and a half but it was worth it. While the line isn't going to win me races, I do have the peace of mind that it's braided stainless steel line that is overall a better part than the plastic stock line in many ways. Definitely worth investing in, even if just for the peace of mind.

    Big improvement

    Engagement point is noticeably higher and feel of clutch seem more positive. I had been missing shifts occasionally and got in the habit of pausing in neutral while shifting. With this line and a Barton Short Throw shifter and bracket I can shift with confidence every time. Installation took the 2 hours others have reported. Long 90 degree needle nose pliers are a must for wrangling lower end and spring clips. The lower/tranny end is a bear! Almost no clearance. I found a post on another site where someone removed the elbow from the transmission in order to get to install it. I don't think I could have done it otherwise! Once new line is threaded into place pull the two spring clips from the elbow then you can pull the new line down enough to get it clipped in the elbow. To reinstall the elbow to transmission you will need to push it on the fitting and keep pressure on while installing spring clip. It is still tight clearance so big hands will need patience. I lost several ounces of fluid so I had to top up brake fluid and pump clutch a lot (200 plus times) to bleed the line but eventually i got there. Overall I am very pleased with the performance and installation went pretty much as expected.

    Good stuff

    clutch feels better. good upgrade to stock. Installation instructions: 1. dont loose the clips. 2. clip at the transmission end doesnt come out completely. It will only come out half way. You can remove the clutch line then and push the clip back in. Dont try to pull it out using force. 3. clip at top end will come out easily all the way. 4. do it when car is cold. 5. if you have someone with small hand, you can reach the transmission end from the hood. Much easier this way. From under the car, you dont have access or any room to remove the line either. Best way is from top using small hands.
