take a screw driver and gently pry up the power window and door lock stuff. Disconnect the wiring from them. Pop off the trim piece next to the mirror and remove the screw I dont remember any other screws but check. There might be 1 more. Then just lift the door panel up and its off.

The window regulator cable on a Ford Expedition is part of the regulator
assembly and is not serviceable separately. Therefore, if your
Expedition's window regulator cable incurs damage, you'll need to
replace the entire regulator. The cable moves the regulator up or down
in response to the window motor. If the cable malfunctions, you won't
have command of your Expedition's power
window until you replace the regulator. If you have basic auto-repair
skills and an hour of free time, you can replace your Expedition's

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.
