I have a 2002 Ford focus SE and was wondering if anyone has ever taken theirs in to get the motor mounts replaced so i'm wondering how much it costs labor and parts thanks.

Well I do not know the exact amount, but I know typically th shop labor hour is about 70 and hour. So do the math you have 3 motor mounts and let say each is about 1 hour that is $210 just on labor plus your parts. Each mount I think is not less that $40.00

If you really can't do them yourself, you can call most shops, and they will tell you what the "list" time is to do that job, and quote you a price for it.

Do it yourself says the man using child labor, LOL.[joke]

$70 an hour for shop labor, that's friggin cheap. I'm looking at $100 + for an hour of shop labor.

Now to the OP, I haven't done mine, but I'm sure I will need to soon (knock on wood a valve seat doesn't drop tomorrow), I have read some of the instructions on how to do them, and it seems to me the toughest part is loosening the bolts to remove the old ones. As long as you have a place to work, a good way to support the car and some tools, you should be fine. You could look for help in your local area. But the location CA is too vague for anyone to offer to help you.
