This morning my wife hit a deer (which is quit often here in AR.) and it busted the headlight. I found a local salvage yard that has a pair for a 2002 for less $$ than 1 for the 2005. If I am not concerned with the low beams being on while the high beams could this just be a simple replacment? I know that the cover is different but the assembly seems to be the same?

Thanks for the help

They will physically fit, but the 2002 connectors are different. I guess you could swap out the connectors or something, but it may be more complex than that. If you have daytime running lamps & fog lamps, you may have to take those into consideration. I don't know much about electrical stuff.

A topic w pics - Headlight upgrade?

Here's some wiring info someone else posted for installing 2005 headlights on an earlier Escape:
The connections should be wired this way:
2001-2004 common wire (WHITE with LIGHT GREEN STRIPE): 2005 connector pin 4
2001-2004 low-beam wire (LIGHT GREEN with BLACK STRIPE): 2005 connector pin 7
2001-2004 high-beam wire (RED with BLACK STRIPE): 2005 connector pin 6
