The example of this part which I received was of very poor quality. The bleed valve thread was so poorly cut, that as much fluid seeped out of the thread as was expelled from the bleed nipple. Also the angle of the pipe union is much steeper than the original, which means the fluid pipe is under some degree of stress once fitted. However, the problem I had turned out to be the master cylinder as much as the slave, so I ordered both a new Mazda master cylinder and Mazda slave cylinder instead.
As has already been suggested, quality control on this part must be a little lax, as some people report excellent results, others like me say it's very poor. However I'll keep it as a spare. I'd say this part is false economy as a permanent replacement. Sorry.
