2015 Titanium vibration at idle

Just got my 2015 Titanium back from having the clutch replaced and all of a sudden, there is a really bad vibration at idle. Dealership told me the front motor mount is bad and they are probably right. My problem with all this is there was absolutely ZERO vibration before they took it apart. Could a motor mount go bad as a result of the clutch work? Would a dealership stoop so low as to install a bad mount after the clutch work to get another service visit?

Where can I get an OEM mount other than the dealership?

More likely it's the crappy passenger mount. Google online Ford dealers to get a better price on the Motorcraft mount, and your local dealer may even price match.

Thanks for the suggestion. I found parts.ford.com. Is this a legitimate resource?

Youtube suggests this can be replaced by supporting the engine with a jack on the bottom of the oil pan. Is this a good plan?

I've used https://www.oemford.parts/ and https://www.fordpartsgiant.com. Put in your VIN and they'll give you the correct part for your car.

Yes, for the passenger mount, I put a block of wood between the pan and jack. No issues.
