Mtx 75 transmission differences

Does anyone know what are the difference between the 2000-2004 MTX 75 transmission ? I know from 2000-2002 april & 2002 april - 2004 they use different shift cables is that the only difference or are there any others ? I'm looking for a MTX75 for my zetec swamp & I want to be able to identify them by sight when looking for them at the wrecking yard.


Thanks ........

03-04, especially in CA, you might run into Duratec transmissions. Those won't bolt up to the Zetec, and have a different final drive of 3.53 IIRC. You might want to look up the VIN differences so you know you aren't getting a transmission from a car with a different engine.

The Zetec version of the Focus used the IB5 transmission.

You are right and have read correctly. Also the Duratec motor also comes with the MTX-75 and this is why you need to be careful in which trans you get as you could get one that went to a duratec in the 03-04 model years which won't bolt up to the zetec due to the different bell housings.
