Im not familiar with the Escort but all dome lights are pretty much the same, place your fingers along the long side of the light cover and your thumb along the opposite and squeeze then pull down. There are tabs along the front and back sides that fit into slots in the fixture so squeezing the dome light cover pulls the tabs out so you can take it off. after replacing the bulb just snap it back in.
