Unhappy HELP with Thermostat Housing Part

I have a 2002 Ford Focus ZX3 hatchback that has been leaking engine coolant and after looking at my engine and all the hoses and reading some forums I think its the thermostat housing that has to be replaced. I am having trouble with finding the right part though. I found this
MOTORCRAFT Part # RH157 {#YS4Z8592BD}
Dual Overhead Camshaft; Housing Only
at but I dont want to order it and have to return it. If anyone can confirm that this is the right thermostat housing for my car or if there are different types of thermostat housings for 2002 ford focus zx3s that would help a lot. Im trying to order this part along with the thermostat gasket and seal asap.

Just get it from the local Ford parts dept tomorrow. It's a common item and odds are they will have it on hand, and are price competitive vs the $13 you'll pay for shipping from RockAuto.

Here is what Ford says that part # is for -->

Which is correct.
OH, you're not playing dumb ...
