Yeah the only thing that was a pain was drilling holes in the back of the headlight covers, overall it took around an hour.
No, my dad and I just popped the hood and did everything from there. The space is really, really crammed so we did end up taking the battery out, but other than that you can do everything like that. Since they were a universal set, they didn't give specifics for the Escape, they just stated how to hook the wires up. My kit came with a rubber grommet to seal the drilled hole though, so I would assume most others would as well.SilverAthlon said:MMM drilling - sounds like fun. I've been reading around EC and I came across someone else who installed HID. Did you have to remove the bumper, or were you able to lean in over the top and take care of business? Did your directions say to drill?
