Thanks for the op tutorial. It lets me know what i am going to be facing.
I ordered the E-RMM as it is much better than stock, yet after break in it does not feel harsh.
So E-RMM it is going to be. Way cheaper too. Only $48. from Village Ford.

part number?

It would be nice if somebody who used the Electric Rear Motor Mount could post a part number, driving impressions and maybe even a photo of the part . . .

All of your questions have been presented in older post in this area of the forum. You just have to use the search bar and dig around a little bit.

A little more vibrations but livable after all it's not a Lincoln difference between night and day on performance DCT shifts smother and no jerking or chatter.

Thanks for the info. I have high hopes the last tiny bit of chatter/shudder remaining after the re-program and re-learn TSB is the whole motor/trans assembly rattling inside that soft mount.

I'm going to install the electric focus rear mount, and will report back with the results.

Here is the "E" RMM part number:
CM5Z-6068-A
list price $67.42
I paid $47.33 plus shipping from Village Ford.

I also ordered the BOLT whis goes into the part
the bolt part number (for a bag of FOUR of them):
W716238-S442

The bolt fits the cross tie from engine bracket to RMM. and is the same sort of bolt holding the RMM in the frame.
The bolts cost $1.03 each list, I paid total $2.40 for the bag of four of them.
Ordering one is near impossible so just take the bag of four...

((the "E" RMM is used for the St as a 'fix' and the ST repair/replace kit INCLUDES the bolt mentioned above. So if FORD wants the bolt replaced.. Who am I to argue?))

much better than stock!

I had the dealer install the Electric Focus rear motor mount while the car was in for headliner replacement.

It is a huge improvement! The engine and trans don't slap around when shifting. 99% of the time I can't even notice an increase in vibration. Every once in a great while, creeping with the clutch starting to engage, I can feel the power pulses of the engine. But this is extremely rare.

Definitely a good improvement.

OTOH, this does not alleviate shudder or clutch chatter, of which I still have a tiny amount remaining after the TSB reprogram and recalibrate. And, under hard acceleration, I still get some wheel hop behavior. I am wondering if this is clutch-related also?

Ordered my ERMM and bolt from Tousley/White Bear Lake Ford.

Is this job possible to do without an engine lift?
