This is an old topic, but it just happened to me.

There are two springs. The top one is larger than the bottom one. If neither is broken, you can lube the latch mechanism and get the latch to pivot and close properly.

However, in my case, the lower smaller spring broke off on the latch mechanism, and I had to order a new part on Ebay.
The Ford part number for the latch assembly for 2001-2007 Escapes is 6L8Z-16700-B.
It will cost about $50-$60.
