Go to napa and get both mounts.but for a 97 mercury tracer. There stronger and less expensive. Suport the eng. And trans. With jack. then bolt both mounts to the engine and trans. slowly lower the engine and trans and and line up the one stud that works and just drill a whole in the cradle for the second stud. Bolt it up and done. The studs are spaced a little different. Any questions let me know. I am an aspire guru.

The focus has so many engine mounts and transmission mount failures. Check the trans mount under the aircleaner assembly for cracking and excess movement when placed in gear. I dont recall front mount but if theere is movement it is best to replace them all at the same time. The trans mount and right engine mount are the easiest to replace. But for forward and backwards movements and noises replace the front ( if applicable) and rear engine mounts.
I have no video of the job just written instructuions.
Park the vehicle on level ground and shut off the engine. Raise the front end of the Escort off the ground using the floor jack. Lower the vehicle onto jack stands placed under the frame to support the car.
2Place the jack under the oil pan and raise the lift plate to the bottom of the oil pan. Remove the engine mount bolt using the 1/2-inch socket wrench. The engine mount bolt is in the center of the mount fitting in clear view.
Slowly raise the engine using the jack until the weight of the engine is removed from the engine mount. Pull the engine mount from the fitting and place the new mount in the fitting.
4Lower the engine slowly and insert the bolt into the mounting hole. Tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds using the torque wrench.
5Remove the bolt from the other engine mount the same way as the first one. Pull the mount from the fitting and insert the new one. Replace the bolt to the center of the mount fitting. Lower the engine to the frame and tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds.
6Remove the jack from under the Escort. Raise the car off the jack stands, remove the stands and lower the car to the ground
Not the whole mount! Raise the car, remove passenger front wheel. Remove two clips that hold splash guard that is in front of the lower part of that engine mount. You'll then see the lower stud with a nut on it. Remove that nut, remove stud with a socket, then remove the spacer that was around stud between bracket and engine. That opens a gap to allow the belt to go on.
There are two liquid filled and a trans mount. You need to found out which way the motor jumps if it jumps back to the fire wall I would change the two liquid fill. They are located looking at the engine on the pulley side left and right bolted to A-frame you can change one at a time. Unbolt one and jack motor with a floor jack and board just lift enough to drop it in and out. It's tough I know I did it before but it can be done. And do the same for the other. Trans mounted one never needs replaced. Just make sure the mounts are bad cause front wheel drive motors usally move but if its moving more than 2"-4" then replace them.
First put a safely rigged jack under the engine to support the weight, and raise it slightly. Loosen the engine bolts and continue to remove them. You only need to raise it slightly so don't go ballistic on the jack. Once the engine clears the mount you need to change, remove the bolts that hold the mount to the frame and replace the mount. Repeat the steps in reverse to finish.
