Upgrading Your Fiesta ST Motor MountOEM motor mounts are generally focused on keeping the motor secure to the chassis. They reduce engine vibration being transferred to the interior cabin. Factory motor mounts are meant to keep the driver and passengers comfortable inside the cabin.
In an effort to reduce unwanted vibration, they tend to be on the softer side. While this is great for reducing engine vibration inside the cabin, a bit of power is dissipated in this process. Additionally, if you plan to drive your Fiesta ST aggressively — at the track or otherwise — you’ll want a durable motor mount that is up to the task.
Installing a Fiesta ST Rear Motor MountInstalling a premium Fiesta ST motor mount is one of the easier upgrades you can do to improve your Fiesta ST handling and performance. Specifically upgrading the rear motor mount alone can make a big difference. For the mechanically inclined, this Fiesta ST motor mount swap can be accomplished in less than an hour. To install the rear motor mount, you’ll need a few common garage tools:
• Jack and jack stands
• 13mm-deep socket
• 6” extension
Once the vehicle is elevated, simply remove the 13-mm bolts holding the bracket to the bottom of the downpipe and transmission. Once that bracket is out of the way, you can remove the bolts holding the rear motor mount to the vehicle, and then remove the rear motor mount. Use a small hammer to gently tap off the black bracket attached to the original motor mount. Then, simply install the new Fiesta ST motor mount re-using factory hardware.
This quick and easy install should be on every Fiesta ST driver’s list of upgrades. This minor part swap yields great benefits such as improved handling and stability, smoother shifting and reduced wheel hop.
