Arrow D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

Just wanted to share this, it has been causing a rattling that lead me to believe it was other suspension parts for a month, but I finally decided to take it off, and this is what I found.lol


Got a fix from Napa though, came with a year warranty.

Just painting up a few things, then I will be lining the motor back up.

Re: D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

Apart from noise , surprised you didn't feel engine / power unit " kicking " which is a normal symptom and complaint when mount is as bad as that .

Re: D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

I didn't feel no kicking, cause my trans mount and dog-bone mount are new.


I did hear a clunk a day before I changed it, but other then that, it was really leading me and friends to think strut.

Re: D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

no chrisoroe, the mount you are seeing in my pic up there^, is the motor mount which is located on the passenger side, under the coolant bottle.

The "rear engine mount", which is refereed to as the torque mount or dogbone mount, looks like this.


But with bushings in it. I removed mine for poly replacements. This is found from looking under the car, it is connected to the trans and sub-frame.

Now the only other one is the trans mount, and it is located under the; (in the Zetec's case) under the air filter housing. (in the case of the Duratec's), it is under the battery/battery box.

Re: D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

Well, why do you need to replace the trans mount? Are you getting a lot of engine movement when accelerating or something?

And all these parts can be found on RockAuto.com, Napa, Autozone, Advance auto parts, and more.

EDIT: And there is no front mount, there is motor mount(passenger side), torque mount(under the car, towards back), and trans mount(on driver side).

Re: D23 motor mount destroyed. lol

Okay well, if it looks all dried out and cracked, then it might be a good time to replace it.

Usually you can start seeing focus mount's fail or get cracked and dried out at around 100k-120k
