Mazda 3 engine mounts in a focus?

Does anyone know if mazda 3 engine and tranny mounts will fit in the foci? Aftermarket companies (Sure motorsports for example) have some nice mounts for the mazda that look similar to the focus mounts...

Thats what I was looking at earlier in the yr also, plus JBR mounts. I ended up just installing vf engineering trans mount when I replaced the reverse switch. For the pass mount use the ford mount unless you like some viberation.

The person from Turbo Tech on here said the UMM on the MK3 Focus is the weakest he's ever seen on a production car, FWIW.

On the MK3 the roll restrictor is the lower/ rear motor mount, where as the upper mount is the passenger side motor mount, and then there is a separate transmission mount below the battery tray and air box.

All three mounts had to be replaced on my ST as they were too weak to the point where Ford issued a TSB to fix this.

Seems like the st's have a rocking motor! I'd have ford replace them w/ the upgraded versions & then upgrade those w/ aftermarket ones. UMM, could have meant under motor mount also, as I never heard it call upper motor mount before. I always referred it as the passenger mount.

I have a noticeable vibration when idling. Last week I took it in at Ford Dealership. The mount looks defective to me as it started leaking fluid. They said they hooked up my engine to the computer and loaded it and it passed with flying colors. I just do not understand how an electronic diagnostic can determine weather or not a mechanical part needs replacing or not. They charged me $120 for the diagnostic and I left with the same problem I came with. This is getting really frustrating as it seems to me I'm just getting ripped of and I'm never satisfied when I leave. If anyone has any advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. I do not know what to do anymore. This is my second focus and I was hoping there'd be a third but by the looks of it I will not be buying another ford again.

Thank you in advance,

Vlad
