Ford Escape CD2 Factory Service Manual 2000 - 2006 Model Years
Factory Service Manual for the Ford Escape CD2 Chassis vehicles built between 2000 to 2006 (2007 in some locations). Covers maintenance issues along with diagnostics, along with complete rebuild guidelines for engine, gearbox, differential, suspension, brakes, steering, body panels and interior components. Also covers the electrical system with wiring diagrams and information on electronic components.
At the time, larger sport utility vehicles tended to use pickup truck-based, body-on-frame designs. Other car makers, Jeep and Toyota, had been offering smaller unibody designs, the Jeep Cherokee (XJ) and RAV4, respectively. Solid rear axles were commonly used due to their ability to carry heavy loads at the expense of a comfortable ride and good handling. Ford and Mazda then decided to offer a car-like, unibody design with a fully independent suspension and rack and pinion steering, the Escape. Although not meant for serious off-roading, a full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD) system supplied by Dana was optional, which included a locking center differential activated by a switch on the dashboard.
