Torque Strut Mount (Rear Motor Mount) Bolt Size/Thread?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows what the size (metric or SAE) and thread pitch the bolt for the rear engine mount is on a  2012 Transit Connect XLT. The one that goes vertically into the cross member. The bolt had to be cut out when trying to replace the engine mount as it was seized to the alloy center part of the mount. Tried everything possible to get it out without cutting it but no luck. Looking at the parts diagrams available, it is part # w500526s439 or #6 in the diagram attached. Trying to find a replacement today and I would guess the Ford dealer would be special order.

You have the parts diagram and part number. Now it's time to start calling distributors. Distributors have computer access to inventory location. Maybe even a chain store like Pep Boys or Auto Zone. You could get lucky and someone has it in stock.

Did you get the part yesterday?

 

It's frustrating to see the part everywhere online, but you need that part in your hand at that moment.  In the old days, I would have taken what was left of the bolt after it was cut, and gone to different stores trying to match the thread & pitch.  I feel your pain, trying to find a part on a Sunday.
