1997 eddie boauer expedition drivers side window wont roll down. (Or up) but you can hear something clicking like a solinoid under the dash, so the switch has got juice.
Do you
have the same problem?

You'll have to remove the door panel and test for power and ground arriving at the motor. You could have a bad motor or bad regulator.

I got the panel off, how do I get the motor/regulator out? And does each window motor have its own regulator?

The wires are exposed. They come from the outside. You can also see and hear if the motor is trying to move to indicate a jammed regulator.

Ok, no noise from the motor. Just the clicking under the dash. I even put my hand on it to feel if it was trying, or heating up. Negative on both counts. So bad motor then I guess?

Test it where? I cant see the motor to test the motor itself(i am guessing you mean with a multi meter)i guess I will start with the connection just before it enters the door. Then what?

Yes, did you read my last one? The door panel is off. The wires go into the door, to the motor I cant see. If I cant see where the wires arrive at the motor, how I can I test there? What am I missing here? (Really not trying to be a smart ass)

The wire don't originate inside the door. They start on the outside and the plug is usually exposed.
