98 Expedition-Door/elect problems

Old faithful has had a bit of a hiccup.
My 98 Expedition (147K miles) has had some issues with the elect door locks and window control unit on drivers door. Locks sometimes don't work, the door no longer activates the interior light or lights on alarm. I was living with it but now the actual inside door handle broke off last night. So, since i have to fix that, i might as well try to fix the electrical problem.
quesitions i have
1) how do you take the door panel off?
2) Get the new handle from dealer?
3) anyone else have these electrical demons? Is this something that can be repaired or is it a replacement?

Thanks upfront to anyone that can help. Been a good SUV and, though we no longer us it as a daily driver) it has always been ready to work when we needed it.

Peace, Love and Power Door Locks!

Re: 98 Expedition-Door/elect problems

Had the same problem getting the panel off! There is a bolt under the door handle but you have to pop the oval shaped trim piece off to get to it. There is another bolt up top under the triangle trim peice that is ajacent to the outside mirror; It pops straight up. Also I think there is one more bolt down low behind the courtesy door light. It pops out with a screw driver blade. (This one I'm not 100% sure on because its been a while).
Also, I have the electrical ghost where the interior light and door locks have a mind of their own! I have not been able to track it to one door. I'll be watching for responses on this one. Hope this helps.
