sorry for off topic
No, the TSB only applies to the ST model and is more extensive than just replacing the rear motor mount. There doesn't appear to be any plans for the N/A Focus to get a TSB for the issue as it is apparently not a known issue for the lower powered models.

You would have more luck changing the parts yourself.

Are you asking about the rear roll restrictor (commonly referred to as the RMM)? If so then yes and yes, although the ms3 mount wasn't a complete cure all either. The FFE mount is supposed to be twice as stiff.

It was hardly noticible in terms of NVH but did help a fair bit on the old SEL. However with the traction control on I could still fairly easily twist the engine enough to get it to clang after the MS3 mount, although it would more easily roast the tires with the tcs off (wheel hop and spin rather than just engine hitting subframe).

I'll be putting the CM5Z-6068-A mount in my 2013 SE this Saturday, if all goes well.

Is it worth it to put a RMM in my car if I have a DCT and not a manual?

Depends on how you drive, I can get the car to behave like it needs a RMM with the DCT but if you are driving without putting the pedal down often probably not.

I have a DCT and I changed mine because if you give it some power from a stop, the stock mount goes to he'll really quick. I did the focus electric mount and it has been awesome.

1.6l / Euro Focus RMM

Hello Guyz

Manual Euro Focus here

Lately installed:
M-5300-S Springs
Steada RSB
Bilstein B6(HD) Shocks

....And have no big problem launching but still have swaying of the car back/forth going over some terrain at some speed like a big central mass lump is moving too freely in the car.(water in half bucket...)
Was told by the guy that installed my new shocks that it is the RMM for sure.
My car power unit is 1.6 Turbo and heavier than the 2.0 and has more torque and power.

Dose, all focus MK3 (Exclude "e" type) have same RMM OR: the 2.0 RMM, is same as stock 1.6 125 BHP?

If so, will probably go for the Powerflex upgrade

Many thanks
GP
