Was it the mount on the side you heard the noise?
How did you get them to cover it under warranty? Also, which mount did they replace and which mount did they use? E-focus? Standard ST mount?
Just curious because A LOT of people might start heading to the dealer, including me.
If it was warranty work was prob same as factory and not an upgraded mount right? The motor mounts arent under recall are they?
I'm not sure what mount they were using, but stands to reason it would have been the standard ST mount. If anyone is in SE MI and wants to have their dealer look at their vehicle, go to Village Ford and ask for Tracy. Let him know that he's done something similar for a customer with a PB ST a week ago.I'm curious as well. My car is doing this and it's super annoying.

I may be completely off the mark on this but wouldn't it make sense that engine movement with an increase in RPM but no forward bite would be dampened by the side mounts and that forward motion with wheel movement (and gear shifting) would be dampened by the RMM? This would explain why a side motor mount failure would be detected with slight increases in RPM (pedal tapping) or revs at rest whereas the knock with fast shifting at high power problems with the RMM (front to rear rock). Or perhaps I've got the physics of this all wrong.I'm also experiencing this noise in the cold and when my engine is cold and suspect it is an engine mount. I parked in my garage and rocked the car forward and back while in gear to see if I could identify the source but it didn't clunk with that mild of a motion. The engine definitely rocks. The noise is apparent after releasing the clutch pedal but it's not a clutch noise because you can reproduce the sound in first gear with throttle off then on. Definitely some mount knocking in the cold.
Is anyone with an aftermarket rear engine mount experiencing the noise?
Nice. Glad you got it sorted. These noises are so annoying!Thanks to hanojreason's pointer, I fixed the issue today. At least for me, the noise was due to one of the airbox connection points. Where the red and yellow circle's were rubbing was making that noise. I was able to duplicate it by putting my hand on the engine intake and moving the engine. This then pulls the intake box which makes this noise. I put grease on the rubber grommet thing and it fixed the sound.
We shall see if this fix works long term.
