Hey, friends. It's Len here at 1A Auto. Today, I'm working on a 2001 Ford Focus and I'm going to be replacing a motor mount. It's going to be a very easy job. 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 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

We're going to need a couple of things here. We're going to need a 10mm. We need to take this off right here. We're going to need a flat head. I'm going to come around the backside there. Disconnect the rearward side. We're going to get this out of the way. Get this one out. I'm going to use my socket. We don't have to disconnect the coolant hoses, we just need to move this stuff out of the way.

Let's see what that screw looks like in one second. That's what it looks like. Nice and rusted. Set it aside for later. Sometimes you can just lift up on this, other times you need to pull a tab. This one just comes right up. It's missing the little clippy-do there. Let's pull this aside. Got a clear view of this motor mount here. Now we need to remove this power steering. This just slides right up. There we go. Set this aside as well. Try not to put that upside down. Not that it really matters. Stay. Thank you.

Now what we're going to do, we're going to come over here. There's three 15mm headed bolts, one, two, and three down there. Okay? I'm going to loosen those up slash take them out. I'm just going to use my safety glasses, hand protection, 15mm and an airgun. Yo can use whatever you have, but the bolts are 15mm.

We've got our floor jack. I've got a nice pad. If you don't have a pad, make sure you use wood. We're going to wheel this under. We're going to go underneath the corner slash edge of the oil pan. The edge should have a plenty of support. If you go underneath the center, there's a possibility that you could crush it. We don't want to do any of that. All we want to do though is be able to lift up this engine a little bit. Just like that. Okay?

Now we're going to remove these two nuts. 18mm. Grab the Mount Assembly. Okay. We're going to remove this nut. 18mm. I'm just going to go ahead and grab onto this shaft with my locking pliers. Continue with my 18mm There's our nut. Nice and hot. Set that aside. Grab our mouth. Here's our old mouth. Easy peasy.

Here we are, friends. A quick product comparison for you. Over here, we have our upper engine mount, passenger side upper engine mount, on our 2001 Ford Focus. Over here, we have our quality 1A Auto part. They're both the exact same. You got your mounting holes, mounting stud, and of course brand new rubber. 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

It's time to install the mount onto our plate. You'll notice you have the stud hole and the little piton hole. We've got a stud and the piton. We're going to line those up. It's just going to go in like that. Here we are. Just set it down. Use my 18mm, blast if together. Okay. Piton's in the hole. I just want to make sure before I go ahead and tighten this up all the way. Nice and tight. Let's go ahead and install it into the vehicle.

We got our unit, set it down in here where it goes. It looks pretty good. Okay. I'm going to jack up the engine a little bit more here. That looks good. We'll take our nuts, starting one here. There are three bolts started. Can do those 15s. I'm going to lower the engine real quick. There we are. Tight, tight, tight, tight, tight. Looks good. We can continue.

Get this situated. Just get it all lined up back to where we took it apart. Press this down in there. A weird one. Needs to go in better. Very nice. Okay. This right here should have a little a thing that comes out and slides over this. We're going to pretend it's there. Slide it over. I've got a little 10mm bolt right here. I'm just going to see about starting it in. There we are. All right.
