Hello, below are directions. As you know, very little room. The key is the bar under engine, hooked to engine that prevents the engine from rocking forward. that bolt gets removed and then you need help and 2-3 peopel rock the engine forward to front of car on its mounts. In the shop, we will wedge a block of wood betwwen firewall and engine to help hold in place while working on it. Bit of a tricky job to do.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

There is a website called Howto and doesn't mentioned about undoing motor mounts?

I understand. I have sent the info per manufacturer. there are different engines offered in the focus. this one is the way sent. It is not complicated, you just have to remove one bolt from the arm under engine which will allow the engine to rock forward. much easier than removing a bunch of items.
