2005 Ford Focus Passenger Motor Mount Replacement
The failure of the passenger side motor mount is common on 2000-2004 foci.
My 2005 was vibrating a lot at idle, so I decided to check my mount. I used
the engine hoist to take the motor weight off of the mount, and sure enough
all of the vibrations in the cabin disappeared. I'm not sure if that test
proves conclusively that the mount is bad, but in my case the mount was the
problem. I assume this mount is original, and it lasted 65,000 miles.
Be safe when working on cars. Before starting this job, you should probably
set the parking brake and disconnect the negative battery cable. Follow

PT Cruiser Engine Mounts. Part 2
PT Cruiser engine mounts are not designed to last very long. This is just a
rough look at what worn mounts can look like. It is reasonably an easy job
to do, BUT if you are going to replace the 3rd mount, which is more or less
centre of the motor, be prepared to drop the motor to change it. There is
next to no room to even undo, let alone removing and replacing the mid
mount. ALL 3 mounts are on the one side of the engine, Why 3??? I dont know
but dont be shy to try do it yourself. As top and bottom are reasonably
easy to change.
Why i put this together, was because i couldnt find next to no info on the
PT,s engine mounts, so this will give a very rough look at how it all goes.
