WARNING: Windshield washer solution contains methanol, which is poisonous. Observe all cautions and warnings indicated on the label of the washer solution container. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

NOTE: To prevent spilling windshield washer fluid, drain the windshield washer reservoir before removal.

Position the windshield washer reservoir aside.

Remove the bolts.

Position the windshield washer reservoir aside.

Remove the windshield washer reservoir.

Disconnect the electrical connectors.

Disconnect the hoses.

Remove the windshield washer reservoir.

CAUTION: Do not operate the windshield washer pump prior to filling the windshield washer reservoir.

There was also a recall listed here http://www.carhelp.com/ford-escape-recal.... Good luck and let us know if that is what you needed or if there was other issues since your question did not quite match the other question :).
