Question about 2004 Ford Escape
I believe 2002 thru 2008 are the same. Turn your windshield wipers off so they stop up on the windshield, not in their home position. Open the hood. On the Right hand side of the engine compartment ( left hand as you stand facing the car ) at the point where the firewall and windshield come together you will see the plastic cover that must be removed. This cover goes from the right hand fender to the middle of the windshield. Near the windshield you will see (4) plastic plugs that are just under 1/2" in diameter. These covers must be popped out of their pocket to get at the phillips head screw that is underneath - I used a pointed scriber to pop them out. Remove the phillips head screws. I had to lift the hood up off the support rod to get the screw driver at the screw nearest the fender. Also on this plastic cover you will find (4) plastic screws that must be removed. Then pull out the little expansion plugs that held these (4) screws. You are now ready to remove the outside cover. Under here you will see another cover that you lift up slightly and pull toward the front of the car. This will expose the filter compartment, and hopefully a slightly used filter that needs changing. If there is no filter in the filter compartment don't be confused, the filter was a dealer option and if you ordered it, they placed the filter in there for you before they delivered the Escape. If you did not order the filter option, they just didn't place one in there. Good luck and hope this helps.
