All Ford Escape for sale Tools required:

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Flathead screwdriver (small)

Step 1: Open the vehicle's REAR door.

Step 2: Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1) inside the interior door pull.

Step 3: Pry and open the screw cover (1) inside the interior door handle. Loosen and remove the Phillips screw (1).

Step 4: Pry and remove the interior door handle's bezel.

Step 5: Pry and remove the trim panel near the REAR of the window.

Step 6: Pry and separate the interior door panel from the frame.

A series of retaining clips secures the panel to the door frame. As you pry outward (working your way around), you should hear them "pop" as they disengage.

Step 7: Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the back of the interior door panel. It should now be completely free from the vehicle.

Step 8: To reattach the door panel, reconnect the wiring harness (1), and "snap" the clips back into place with a FIRM (but not too firm) strike near each retaining clip.

Step 9: From here, simply reverse the removal process.

Be sure to tighten the Phillips screws (2), reattach the trim panel, and reattach the door handle's bezel.
