Hey, friends. It's Lenny here at 1A Auto. Today, I'm working on a 2001 Ford focus, and I want to show you how to do a lower transmission mount. It's going to be a very easy job, and I want to be the guy that shows you how to do it. If you need this or any other part, you can always check us out at 1aauto.com. Thanks.

Okay, so here's our part. This is what we're going to be replacing. All we're going to do is just put a little bit of pressure underneath the transmission here just to hold it up. We don't want to try to lift it up or anything. You can use a floor jack or a post Jack or whatever you want. Just enough so it can't really go any place because we're going to take out this bolt right here and then this bolt right here.

To do that, I'm going to use my 13 millimeter socket or ratchet. Just wiggle it around and get it past the grooves. That's what our bolt looks like. Now, we're going to move along to this one. There we are. Pull that one out of there. That's what it looks like. Set it aside.

I've got my 13 millimeter wrench. I'm just going to break that free. Just try to get that completely out of there so we have access to getting out the upper one. There it is. Set this aside. We'll do the upper same way. See of I can get my ranch up in there. Doesn't look like it gives me very much. I try breaking this free with my ratchet. See if this gives me enough room to slide it out. Looks like not yet. So I'll just keep continuing here what I'm doing, just try to get that upper bolt out. I'll try switching back over to the 13. I don't know, maybe try to pivot it. So close. There we are. Second bolt. Get this bracket out of here. Just make sure you pay attention to which way it goes. This little hooky-do goes facing down. Grab this of here. That's what that looks like.

Over here, we have our original 2001 Ford Focus lower transmission mount. Over here we have our brand new quality 1A Auto part. As you can tell, they're both shaped the exact same. You've got the same mounting holes, new rubber. Everything looks exactly the same. I don't see any reason why this wouldn't be a quality part to install into the vehicle, so I'm going to go ahead and do it. If you need this or any other part, you can always check us out at 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

All right. It's time to install this. Just going to go like this. Go up in there like that. Bring this over. We've got our little tabby thing facing down. I'm going to get my top bolt in there. Find the hole. There it is.

Generally speaking, I like to start them both before I go ahead and tighten it down. This one right here, I'm going to tighten up the majority of the way first though, just so I can have the space that I need. Feels like it should still be able to go quite a bit more here. Just want to get that top one almost all the way in. It's not completely tightened so that way there we can still move the bracket around. Get this one, so it's bottomed out as well.

Here we go. It's getting snug now. That one's snug. Go ahead an do this lower one. Tight, tight. Let's move along. We'll get these two. The longer of the two goes straight up here. The shorter goes this way. Put this in. Few good threads here. Very nice. Now, we have to get this one lined up. To do that, I'm just going to lower the engine/transmission down a little bit, just wiggling it around, try to get it started on the threads over there.

Looks like it's going in. Ford really wanted to make sure you had plenty of threads sitting out on these. Make sure that's nice and tight. Go ahead and do the same to this one. Tight, tight, tight, tight.

Get this out of the way. We can lower the vehicle safely back down to the ground. And off we go.
