Re: 1997 Ford expedition power window.
The only screws holding the door panel are the ones holding the armrest in place. You may find them under the armrest. Remove them. and then using either a trim stick or a small scraper or screw driver, feel around the edges of the door panel for the clips that are holding it in. If you use a screwdriver, use a pair of them as this will give you an even pull since you will put one on each side of the clip and then pull outward. Use a moderate tug to get them loose, not pulling too hard. I prefer to work from the bottom up to the top. Once you have that loose, you will need to get hold of the glass and walk it back into the track. Probably best to have a helper to hold onto it in case you find you need a tool that is not within reach.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Window has come off track,try to lube the track, reset the window in the track an use a apoxy glue let it sit for a few hours an it should b fine that's what I did to mine, that last snow storm we had my truck was covered,I was keying my truck warm up I went to open the window it was stuck, so I gave it a little hit an then it fell in the door an the snow came in lol, then I found out what to do I never had a prob again
sounds like this could be a problem whithe the track or it came loose from the window regulator. very easy to tell what happend. take the door pannel off and just simply look inside. if it is the part that accualy monts to the window that is your regulator. if it looks like it was glued on to the window then you can go to any part store and pick up a tube of uerothane it comjes in a caulk tube apply this to the track on the regulator and put the window back in this will take about 24 hrs to fully cure. also do not close window all the way only about half way untill fully cured or at least 5 hours
you may have to take the door panel off and ask the at the auto part store what is the best lube for you to use on the tracks if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your SUV wish you the best of luck michigan Man
Remove sail panel cover for mirror, remove screw. Remove window switch cover and remove screw. Remove courtesy lamp lens on door and remove screw. Remove inside door handle trim cover and remove 8mm bolt and handle. Lift upwards and remove door panel.
First check what caused the problem. If the window was hard to put up and down then clean the running rails either side move the window up and down with your hand to make sure it is moving freely then just glue the window back to the track with glue recomended for it
There are 2 screws just above the door handle you need to remove. Remove the plastic trim around door handle. Then starting at bottom of door panel pull out to disengage the push pin clips and work your way up both sides of panel. Then lift up on door panel to disengage the weatherstip on top of panel.
