Just a Cabin filter FYI:
On the 2001-2004 Escape models (& maybe the later models as well), the Cabin Filter installation port (or box or well) is located under the passenger side cowl. I call it the cabin filter airbox. Some (all?) early Escape models did not come from the factory w the cabin filter, but there is a place to put one. To remove the left cowl for cabin filter instalation you may not have to remove the wiper arm. I didn't on my 2002 XLS. Instead, you can cycle the wipers then remove the ignition key when they are in an UP position.

I installed a Micro-Gard GA20070 air filter from O-Reilly's auto parts into the cabin filter airbox on my 2002 Escape XLS. Other cabin filters: using the Wix filter website cross-reference, the Wix 42136 is the same as the MicroGard filter. The Wix 24816 & Fram CF10137 are in my notes, but I'm not sure if those part numbers are right.

Cabin filter part numbers:
Micro-Gard GA20070
Wix 42136
Wix 24816 (?)
Fram CF10137 (?)

Can someone PLEASE supply me with the Ford part numbers for the screws that the decorative caps pop onto as well as the plastic push pin/screw fasteners that go along the front edge of the cowl? TIA.
