2005 Ford Escape Shifter pieces
I am looking for a piece that is missing from my ford escape. I have attached the photo
below with the item circled. I borrowed a picture from someone else's shifter. I know I
might need to replace the bezel and all, but I am looking for this part because I have no
experience in purchasing part and this is just an eye sore with it missing.
Not sure this is it or not.....http://oemfordparts.jackyjones.com/ford/escape/5l8z7e391aaa/2005-year/xlt-trim/3-0l-v6-gas-engine/body-cat/center-console-scat/?part_name=bezel.....maybe verify at your local Ford Parts counter?
Try a local salvage yard?
That's the cover for the shifter release. If the shifter won't come out of park when you step on the brake you can pop off that cover and, with a small screwdriver, manually release it. Try eBay, a junk yard, or your local Ford Dealer. HTH. - Jim
This same part was missing on mine and I replaced it with a $1.00 black Nylon Plug from Home Depot. They come in different sizes. I forget which size I used. I had to trim it to fit a little bit, but now it looks like it was made for that purpose. I think I used a little bit of rubber cement to hold it in and it's been there for years.
My 2005 Escape shift indicator panel (the flexible piece of plastic that slides with the shifter) has broken off and looks like the one in your picture. I wonder how to repair that.
