you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

First, you need to pry off the cover for each light. The best way is to find the side of the cover that has the arrow etched into it. It has a longer lip, and is easier to pry with a screwdriver. Once off, turn the light housing counterclockwise to get it out of the light cover. Then pull out the bulb (for one, I had to use a rubber gripper, the other one came out very easy). Replace the bulb and then twist the bulb housing clockwise to get in. When putting the light cover back in, the small fixed plastic notch on the light cover goes on the side of the opening without the notch. The longer, flexible notch (like on a remote control) goes on the other side and snaps right in. Took me about 5-7 minutes on the first one.

Testimonial: "Thanks will give it a try."
I'm pretty sure the 2001 thru 2004 Escape takes an H4 bulb for the headlights. (I have a 2002) Both headlight bulbs can be be replaced from under the hood. No tools required.
There are some pictures at the end of my collection that may help.
As I recall, you need to squeeze a clip on the harness plug to get it off.
Then, pull off the big rubber boot.
There is a wire clip holding the bulb in. This can be tricky if you never did it. It will tick you off when you figure out how easy it is.
On the driver's side of the bulb, push the upper wire retainer towards the front of the vehicle a little and then upwards; that should unhook it.
Then, Again on the driver's side, push the lower retainer towards the front of the vehicle a little and then DOWN; that should unhook it.
The wire latch will then swing out of the way, and the bulb can be removed.
The bulb can only be inserted one way.
