my 2008 ford escape rear hatch door wont open. can it be the motor?
By motor, do you mean the actuator? It could be if you don't hear it activate when you push on the door lock button to open it.
how much do they cost to buy
Call your local Ford parts department for price and availablity. The whole assembly should run you $100-$200, or you can try using a generic actuator like the first post and fit it yourself if your good at mechanical assemblies.
