Is it round? Unscrew it from the shaft. Otherwise, there is probably a hidden screw near the bottom. I think that is more the norm for Ford. I'm not sure about the Escape though...

Looks like ours...which my wife drove to work. Otherwise I'd go out and have a look. Basically, I am no help now. Sorry.

On the front side of the shifter, about a half inch under the trigger, there's a hex screw that secures the top section to the shaft. Pop that out, and...the missus stopped me from disassembling further. lol

I hope someone can help...

The indicator light in the center console shift assembly just went out on my 06 Escape. I removed the top piece & shift knob to take a look at the bulb for replacement but couldn't figure out how to get to it. The bulb was too tight to rotate & disconnect from the top & I don't know how to get underneath the interior panel. In the process I accidentally unplugged my O/D wire from inside?! The wiring isn't torn... just looks disconnected. It's still attached to the shift knob but I don't know where it plugs back into... ??

The dealer over the phone couldn't tell me a replacement bulb number, and said that it would need a whole new shift assembly. Is that true for just a burnt bulb? Everything else works fine (except my O/D unplugging issue).

I'd really appreciate any advice before resorting to taking it in!
