All black S. The Ford parts system isn't very descriptive, they ordered me the only grille that mentioned black. It arrived and was the wrong grille (Sports package with chrome edges). The only way to find the correct part# for the all black grille is to use an S model VIN. The all black grille is just called a mesh grille.Do you mean the grille with blacked out sections on the Sport Appearance package or the all black one from the base S?
My F150s were always easy to work on cause you can see the fasteners. Everything is hidden in the Escape except the six plastic retainers on top and two corner screws. The sides and bottom have a series of funky tabs that I hope slip into slots easily. But nothing is ever easy. Hope I don't have to remove layers of other stuff to get to the grille. When I pick up the grille this week I'll ask the service dept for their advice.I wish I could answer your question about installation. It was easy to remove grille on my truck because most of the clips let you work your way down from the top. I'd suggest just setting aside some time next week to pop into the service dept one day for 20 minutes and just get one of them to show you quick
Is that from an owner's manual or shop manual?FWIW the '13-'15 manual shows
+ remove hood latch mechanism
+ remove the panel that closes the gap between the top of the bumper cover and the radiator
+ remove screw-clips holding the grille from the back
reverse to install
Maybe the same for the '17 ?
Motorcraft workshop manual which is copyrighted. Full of descriptive pics, exact location of all fasteners and shows the type of each. You know, the one you said in another thread isn't worth the subscription fee.Is that from an owner's manual or shop manual?
Yeah, 30 bucks for 72 hours is a ripoff. Haynes manuals never cost that much ...Motorcraft workshop manual which is copyrighted. Full of descriptive pics, exact location of all fasteners and shows the type of each. You know, the one you said in another thread isn't worth the subscription fee.
So is the owner's manual, but you cut and paste and reproduce that content freely.If this is from the shop manual, pics from it are not allowed to be posted because it is copyrighted information.

I do not think you will find "reproductions" (pics, PDF pages) of any manuals on this forum, they do a pretty good job of protecting intellectual property here. If/when you create original work of your own you'll appreciate that. Maybe a few things 'slipped through' in the early days of the forum and are buried here somewhere.So is the owner's manual, but you cut and paste and reproduce that content freely....
