The factory stereo can be removed very easily with a specialized tool called a DIM. I received this tool when I purchased an upgrade radio from Crutchfield. The tool is a pair of metal U shaped "horseshoes". Simply remove two panels from each side of the radio and insert the DIMS fully to unlock the radio chasis from the mount. Then simply pull the stereo out. Takes less than 5 minutes tops.

How do you remove the CD player from a 98 Mazda Protege?

I had to remove the glove box to get at the right side through there and pop it out, then just pried my way in the left side - had to use quite a bit of force. That factory CD player was garbage. BUY A STEREO REMOVER KIT FROM WALMART, ABOUT $5.00. IT'S WELL WORTH IT. TAKE OFF THE SIDE CAPS WITH A FLAT HEAD SCREWDRIVER. USE THE DESIGNATED TOOL (A "U" SHAPE) TO GO IN THE SMALL SLOTS AND RELEASE THE CLASPS. THEN, THE STEREO/CD PLAYER WILL SLIDE RIGHT OUT.

Is the fuse blown in a 2004 Mazda 6 CD player if its not functioning?

there was a TSB (technical service bulliten) realsed about static elctricity causeing the CD player to "cut out" check the fuse, disconect your battery for 30 seconds, then check to see if it works again. or take it to Mazda, they'll give it a once over and determine if the CD module needs replacement
