Here is a better way. Instead of removing the engine mount, just slide the fan housing (holds the two electric fans) out of the way. You only have to thumb the two top clips open (no tools required), then lift the housing from its lower supports and slide it several inches away from the alternator (really easy to do). This allows plenty of clearance to remove the alternator and replace it. I changed out the alternator on our 2000 Focus in under an hour. Just replaced mine last week. The hardest part is once the alternator has been disconnected from all its mechanical and electrical connections. It won't come out unless the passenger side engine mount is unbolted ( 3 bolts, 19 mm I think ) and the engine is pried forwards. Once this was done, it was pretty easy. Don't forget to remove the negative battery terminal before starting.
