I am trying to replace the passenger brake light bulb in my 2005 Ford Escape. I unscrewed the 2 phillips head screw but something else is holding the light assembly on. It appears to be in the wheel well next to the jack, but I can't see what it is...can only get my hand in there and feel 2 plastic nuts or something like that. I dont want to force it though.

To replace headlight bulb of kia pregio van: You only need Phillips screw driver and 10mm socket or open wrench. Open the hood, remove front grill with 4 phillips screw.

On most Ford Trucks and SUV's there will be two philips head screws on the exterior of the light. Undo these two screws and the whole lens will pull outwards. Unplug the bulb and unscrew the retainer - reverse instructions with new bulb in place.
On a newer Ford, there may be an access panel inside the cargo area. If there is, you will gain access to the bulb and retainer from there.

I've done this once, so i'll do my best to help you here. You'll need some sort of light you can shine to do this. First you need to unplug the headlight plug from the assembly. Next there will be a rubbery boot you also need to take off, this just pulls right off. This next part is where it gets sticky. There is a phillips screw that holds down a flexible pin/clamp/whatever you want to call it down against the back of the bulb. Unscrew the screw enough to remove the pin, you won't need to completely remove the screw though to remove the pin. Once you have the pin removed, you can then get at the bulb. The bulb itself has 3 points, like a down-ward arrow. Line up the 2 points that are closer together with the top and just slide the bulb in WITHOUT TOUCHING THE GLASS of the bulb. If you touch the glass, say goodbye to the bulb's life. To put it back together, get the bulb in, the pin screwed down and reverse the rest of the process. Hope this helps.
