cant be 100% sure about the connect, but normally 3 engine mounts are fitted to front wheel drive vehicles. I do know that the connect suffers from the rear gearbox mount failing.
These are available from a well known online auction site, just picked one up myself for about £60 delivered.

Yeah apparently my mechanic said its two that need doing i could see the one on the left... is there another one then a gear box mounting? He said u can only get them from a main dealer but i called transit parts and they do a front engine mounting for 59 inc would that be the two at the front? I just reslly need to save some money its the wrong side of xmas to be paying out and buying them from a main dealer is going to cost a packett??? I had the clutch and slave done last year by a differant mechanic and he said that he had allot of grief doing it as one of the bolts on the mountings had been sheard off that would be the gear box mounting then? I just really could do eithout this at the moment i know nothing about engines lol

They said it was a front engine mounting?? When i called europarts they said they only did the off side one? So im really confused!!! I think there ford parts the clutch ans slave i got where last year! The mechanics round here in east london are slippery at the best of times but this time of the year even more so just want to try and save some money mate you know!!

if you are juddering - i would say gear box mount... theres 2 on that:

one on rear and one to side

and one on the driver side so a total of 3 mounts all together... as i said I think so don't quote me :D
