:confused: This might be a stupid question, but I can't find anything on this, not even in the owners manual. In the rear cargo area of my 2008, there is an access panel on the right rear wall. When I remove the cover, it appears that there sould be something mounted in there. But nothing. Was wondering, cause when I purchased this vehicle, the original owner opted to keep the extra key with remote, all the trays inside the console, and maybe what ever was behind that rear panel, and WHO KNOWS what else...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Nope nothing goes in there. I beleive if you have the Hybrid or opted for the wet trunk, thats where jack would be located. In your case the jack is in floor of the cargo area.

Fire Extinguisher is a good idea! We lost a car to a battery fire once. Really broke my wife's heart loosing that car. Lots of memories. An extinguisher would have been nice and handy!

ABSOLUTELY!!!
That is why in Europe no car pass inspection without:
1/Fire extinguisher
2/First aid kit
3/Reflecting triangle for emergencies.

What year is your Escape? Cause mine has the fuel can adapter in case I ever need to refuel with a fuel can as my Escape came with the cap-less fuel thing.

Yup! Back in the day, 1975-78 I owned a Mercedes (MY1967) while statoned in Germany. It had all of those items, plus some other things that I felt necessary to carry in the car. Mostly items to keep it going in case of hose, tire, belt or whatever failure :thumb: . All was to naught though, as when it failed, it failed. A real steaming piece of high dollar car that was... :cuss:

The original owner opted to keep the extra key with remote??? All the trays inside the console??? Why?? Why didn't you get those items? What is the original owner going to do with the extra key?? Even when you buy from a dealer, you get the extra key, even if it's used! I don't get that at all!

Amazingly, my wife has not lost a set of keys to her Mazda since we bought it. Previous cars have not been held in as high an esteem. Based on that I am assuming the PO of his Escape had lost the other set and never replaced them. People do that, ya know? :confused:
