Ebay E-RMM - CM5Z-6068A

Hi!

So I went ahead and bought from ebay the RMM that is now used in the ST and electric Focus. The part number is CM5Z-6068A. When I received it, I instantly noticed it was made in China and was made of aluminum. Is this correct or did I just purchase a copycat product? The metal seems very rough in terms of cut and finish.

Pictures attached.

If it doesn't have an authentic ford sticker or Barcode on it then it's a fake. That data tag on the side looks like it was made on a cheap label printer lol.
Don't trust parts that don't actually come in the Ford parts bag like many of their parts do.

dead straight and flat out.. i wouldn't trust that in the car i parted to hold my engine up... god knows what that rubber is made of if its even the proper stuff

that part just looks.. supercheap

honestly return it and find a proper one if the seller refuses contact ebay and tell them you received a blatant chinese knockoff.. ebay is great for refunding for things like that...

that looks even more rough then the worst of fords stamped parts for edges

Dang! I knew almost immediately when I opened the parcel that it seemed too poor in quality. Live and learn, I suppose.

return it.... again if the seller refuses Ebay and paypal both have a very VERY strong policy on Sellers selling counterfeit shit...

I bought supposidly a genuine asus LCD screen for my laptop and when i received it.. it had no model number had no tags nothing the pictures on ebay showed the proper screen which is a Toshiba panel when i looked close i realised it was some hongjun or some crap chinese plant with C E (China Export) on it and under the ribbon cable i found a awful tilted printed thermal label with 2 sets of jibberish the panel model number and funny enough while on a tilt (built by AsusUSA) i died laughing i contacted the seller he said said it was real i sent a picture to asus and got a phone call saying 100% counterfeit the seller then stopped responded to me and blocked me from viewing his auctions. i called ebay sent the picture of the screen received and the auction number and i got a email back 3 hours later 100% refund seller was banned and a note saying they didnt even bother opening the auction the picture was point blank showing a fake

P.S. Laptops are Built by Asus USA.. the components and rest are sourced from other companies like samsung toshiba LG etc etc..

I found a used OEM mount on ebay and got it for $20 shipped with make an offer. I assume it came out of a wrecked car but the mount look almost new.

I wouldn't bother with the OEM mounts.

What would be the worst case scenario if this mount broke? Aren't there two other mounts to hold the engine up?

It doesn't hold the engine up, so any damages would be from the drive train twisting too much. Might even break the exhaust, or other items that get stretched/hit.

Actual full failure is probably unlikely, not working as well as hoped for is almost certain. Longevity is a question.
