My radio/clock display screen is almost unreadable except at night. The plastic lens is scratched and the plastic is barely transparent. I am looking for a replacement, preferably in the Portland, Oregon area. I’m trying to keep the budget down. Please let me know what you’ve got, where you’re located, and what you are looking to get for it.

Good luck with your search. eBay sellers really want a lot of money for these! I pulled one (for a 2012 Fusion, so it says Fusion instead of Escape...) for the FDIM with canbus controller project someone posted here. When asked what it was at the you pull it junk yard, I said a clock (that is one thing it does...) so it was $5...last time I pulled one they wanted $25 for it (still a relative bargain, but more than I was willing to spend on a project).

Thanks for the reply. I hadn't checked my local wrecking yards in a while and was surprised to see a new enough escape. I did find the clock display, unfortunately it was just as scratched as mine. That said, since it was $10 and I now had an extra, I pulled it apart a bit and realized the plastic screen was just attached with adhesive. After some prying, it came off without too much trouble. I went down to my local TAP Plastics and had them cut me a piece of 3/32 smoked plexiglass. I used the residual adhesive to stick it on, it's actually held in place pretty well by the bezel, so I didn't worry about it too much, and it looks better than new.

That is great to hear, I could have posted images of mine taken apart if it would have helped you, they are slightly different as mine is silver steel and the Escape seems to be black and possibly plastic, and I couldn't tell if the face was held on the same way. The existing one in my car, and the one I pulled, are pretty scratched up as well, enough that I get weird reflections off it if I have the sunroof open or a window (I have really dark tint).
