Question about 2006 Ford Escape
I have a 2002 escape so I'm not sure how much different it is for you.
There is a pan on the driver's side of the engine up towards the front by the radiator. It is sitting vertically facing the front of the car. I went through the painstaking process of pulling mine off to find the transmission filter, only to find it didn't have a filter. Everyone told me it had a filter, even the dealer. All lies =) Don't waste 3 hours of your time pulling that thing off and then trying to get it back on.

This is more diffucult than changing the oil filter for engine oil.
You must remove the transmission pan. The filter is housed within the automatic transmission oil pan and is attached to the valve body by several small screws or bolts.
You should be aware that many do it yourselfers choose to take this job to a professional!
