Here is how I removed the front passenger side door panel from a 1999 Ford Expedition. The driver's side door should be the same, except for the mirror switch which needs to be unplugged. The 1998 *might* be the same, I don't know, but this should be helpful to someone.

Use a flat blade screwdriver or other suitable tool to pry out on the top of the triangular plastic panel on the top front of the door panel. The plastic holder should pull out of the door. Now pry up on both sides of the triangular panel and pull it loose. Remove the Philips head screw you find under this panel. Pull the door latch handle, pry out the insert where the handle goes through, and remove the bolt that holds the door handle in place. Remove the door handle. Pry up on the ends of the door switch panel to remove it. Unplug the cables by pushing in on the lock tab on the side of the plug and pulling out. Remove the Philips head screw accessible through the switch panel hole. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot at the bottom of the courtesy light lens and pry up and out to remove the lens. Remove the Philips head screw behind this lens. Pull up on the door panel to remove it. Be careful of the courtesy light when removing the panel - give the light a quarter turn counter-clockwise from the rear to remove it from the door panel.

The F-150 appears to be the same as my '99 Expedition - try for some instructions on an F-150, this was helpful for me.

Not a whole lot to improve on this is right on - try visiting Strutmasters.com and see what else we can do for you.

There are 10 Phillips screws holding the door panel on. First you would need to remove those. Then you can remove the door panel from the door. On the backside of the door panel you would need to remove the plugs from the backside of the switches. Then you can remove the screws that hold the switch into place on the door panel.
