My local VIP shop in Yarmouth, Maine, wants $540! Claims they need to shape the line and it takes seven hours.... I have a 1999 Protege.
you DO NOT disassemble the lens cover!!!! Open the hatch, and you will see small access panels directly behind the taillights that open. Just open the panel and take the bulb out.
this is a guess but most Proteges use DOT3
behind the engine on the firewall
Switch is defective or out of adjustment.
there is a brake switch under the brake pedal. This is a button that pretty much controls the break lights. you might need to replace this or look through the fuse box under the hood. (blue 15) is the fuse that powers the brake lights.

My 2007 Mazda 3 has very detailed instructions on how to do so...check your owner's manual to see if its the same situation on the 2005 RX8. See sources and related links below for more information on bulbs.

Remove the high mount brake light retaining screws from your Mazda Protg. Remove the high mount brake light wiring harness. Reverse the process to install your new high-mount brake light.
Probably a brake light switch problem. May be able to adjust, or may need to replace. I just replaced the brake light switch in my 1998 Mazda Protege LX and the problem came back. I believe the cruise control could be shorting out the brake light switch.
Brake system, low lubricants, excessive wear and tear of power steering system, for starters.

Pop the trunk, behind where the brake lights are, there is probably a plastic/rubber cover with screws in it, remove it, and then there should be some screws holding the lens in place, remove those, pull the brake light lens from the outside of the car, twist the wires to undo them from the lens, and go from there.
The Fuel filter is located on the firewall, next to the brake master cylinder and right behind and below the carb.
