    I got as far as your solution was shown on the screen. I got under the door panel just fine. that process is pretty universal. It's after removal of the door panel I need. I got some parts out of the door and propped the window up to keep it closed. It's replacing the regulator mechanizm that I need. I appeared that there was more to your response than showed on my screen, but I couldn't access the info.

On the 2002 Escape, you remove 4 screws (1 under covers in upper corner near hinge, 1 under cover in recess of opening latch, one in door handle, one on door edge). Then there are only pop-out grommets. Just apply gentle pulling to the panel close to where it is still binding to the door, and these will pop out one by one. They sound like they are breaking (and on some cars they break easily), but none of mine did. There are no screws under window/lock controls, so don't bugger things up by trying to pry that open

Windows stopped working all of a sudden. first rear passenger side then the rest. how can I fix this?

Check fuses and wire harness to door for correct connection. Check on the fuse box cover as it will show a relay that can also be faulty.

The rear hatch and window do not open all the time. it will stay like that for days then opens up.

Your window regulator may be bad, or the motor on the regulator may be shot. If it's only one window doing it that's the most likely cause. There's also a chance one of the motor wires in the door boot has snapped because of opening and closing the door over time

Won't go up

That sounds like the power window regulator is broken, which is a pretty common occurrence. The window regulator will need to be replaced. Also check the door switches and motor.
if the switches and motor are good from swap testing. If all the wiring an connections are good, I would suspect the up relay to be the failure on this one. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Rear window regulator broke

The regulator is attatched to the glass using the rivets through plastic disks. You need to drill them out before the glass can be removed.Save the plastic parts for reassembly.Good Luck
