Egz And if you wanted to be technical, the bottom piece really isn't a mount, but more of a roll restrictor. But calling it a mount is okay.

You'd find 4 bolts & one big nut & stud in the middle. You need to place a jack under the trans, so the trans doesn't fall out.

felixthecat What mount are you needing or trying to replace? The bottom one is a roll restictor, in that it resticts the motor from rolling back & forth. Other words know as a ''Dogbone" cause of it shape. then you have two on top, one on the drivers side under the battery box. And another on the passenger side party hidden by the Degas bottle. If your replacing the Dogbone, upgrade to the poly mounts one.

kkspeed I noticed the Anchor Transmission Mount (picture in post) has a different rubber center section than stock Transmission Mount.

Is this design / mount worse than stock?

Is it better to purchase an OEM Ford Transmission Mount?

myfafp3 the mount that cambrian posted is part of the trans mount

warneej There are only 3 mounts on the focus. The passenger side motor mount (not pictured) and the two that you pictured in post #2.

cambrian123456 But, perhaps that isn't a transmission mount as here's a picture from a fellow on focaljet who broke his transmission mount:

Jgrove998 ^Right. The transmission mount is under the battery.
