Re: 2001 Ford Expedition window came off track
You did not mention whether it was a front or rear door? I assume its a front because u stated no screws.
Here are instructions for front door:
Remove the plastic trim from behind mirror(just snaps on).
Remove the window switch panel(just snaps on).
Remove the screw behind the mirror cover.
Remove the screw behind the window switch panel.
Remove the courtesy lamp lens.
Remove the screw in the courtesy lamp housing.
Remove the inside door handle trim cover.
Remove the inside door handle bolt.
Lift upward and then outward to remove the front door trim panel

The track is called the regulator, it is most likely broken. you will need to buy a new regulator, and I recommend highly to get the window motor with it. Door panel must come off to replace. Not an easy job if you havent done it before.
You remove the door panel,to get to everything.
You may have to replace the window regulator or cable.
You don't just put it back on track,it broke.
Were long sleeves and thin gloves,to avoid cuts,while working inside the door panel
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
There is a latch inside the frame of the back door. You have to switch
the latch to unlock and they will then allow someone in the back seat
to open the doors.
From www.topix.com /forum/autos 1998 (2000) Expedition....child safety lock often kicked in by itself. SOLVEDI wedged it down with a rubber plug. - ALL OK for ~ 3 years. Then lock "activated" even with lever DOWN. All is FINE NOW - see below. Rick Milton, Canada Remove
the plastic cover around the lock lever. Spray a light penatrating oil
(wd-40) in and around the lock leaver mechanisim and work the
mechanisim up and down several times. This should free up the small
gravity lock inside the mechanism.
