The wiper motor is located under the black cowl in the front. remove the cowl and follow the wiper arms till you hit the motor. Its not a hard job just tight in space.

It may sound pretty complicated, But the Escape happens to be one of the easiest out there, and fantastic for a beginner.

    First place your floor mats on the windshield to protect it. Then lift the caps at the base of both wiper arms (mark them right and left) and remove them. (wiggle them a little bit while lifting). Take out the 8 plastic phillips head screws on the driver's half of the windshield cowling (the black plastic piece) and lift to remove. Unplug the wiper motor and remove the three 10mm bolts that hold the whole assembly in place. Lift out.

04 escape wiper relay location


See this AutoZone page, close to the bottom is the fuse box diagram and description for the fuse box for the Escape. There is a fuse for the back wiper and another for the front wipers.
You may have to copy the picture of the description and drop it into MS word or another program just to be able to read it.

Front wiper motor where is it located at in the engine compartment


Under the windshield cowling. You only need to remove the driver's side wiper arm and half of the cowling. It's probably the simplest wiper motor on the planet to change. Just take your time. I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a comment to help others in a similar situation. I did address this in more detail quite some time ago. If you research my previous answers you should be able to locate it without much difficulty. Thank you and happy holidays.
