How do I get my sunglass holder to open on my escape?

I just bought a 2008 Ford Escape and it has a sunglass holder near the rear-view mirror. I can't manage to get it open?! I push, pull...tried everything and it won't open. Is there some sort of trick to getting it open or could it maybe be broken?

Need to vistit the dealer ans ask about recall 04V602000: Liftgate Latch Release Rod Replacement

Certain 2004-2005 sport utility vehicles and certain 2001-2003 sport utiity vehicles having rear liftgate components serviced with 2004 equivalent components fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 206, "Door Locks and Door Retention Components." The rear liftgate latching system does not meet the inertia load requirement in one direction.

Good luck.

My side rear view mirrors stop work

That's the beauty of electronics. Eventually they go bad. Of course I am kidding when I say that's the beauty of it but anyway. Both problems that your are having could be cause by several things whether is be electrical or hardware based. Your side mirror adjustment could've stopped working due to the switch going out, the motor going bad, or maybe a wire shorting out or possibly even a fuse blowing (although I doubt it's the fuse because several other things would likely also stop working). The rear view mirror problem could also be cause be such electrical problems although I would probably bet that the LEDs just finally burned out and in that case you would have to buy a new rear view mirror. Diagnosing such problems over the internet is nearly impossible and your best bet is to take it to a good mechanic

Does the rear lift door latch on a 2008 ford escape have a fuse

No the rear door latch is not electric....but does have a electric lock which is fuse 17 in the inside fuse panel....not the one under the hood. The rear lift glass is controlled by electric and is in the same circuit fuse 17. Good Luck

When you replaced the battery, you may have blown the fuse that runs all of those accessories. I would check your fuse panel for any blown fuses.

2008 Ford Escape heater blower no longer runs in position 1. Works great in positions 2 thru 4.

It could be the blower resistor. While I'm not familiar with the 2008 Escape, most resistors are located near the blower motor under the dash on the passenger side. It'll have a plug with several wires, and usually 2 screws holding it in.
