According to my brother (who is a mechanic), The stock stereo in the protege requires radio removal tools (2 sets) to remove -- you can get them at just about any parts store. Just carefully remove the molding around the radio, insert the tools all the way and then pull them outward to release the clips. The radio should just slide out.
To remove a stock stereo, you will first need to remove the bezel from the stereo. Then, pull the stereo out of the dashboard and remove the wiring harness.
Remove the retaining cover from your 2003 Suzuki stock stereo. Remove the stereo retaining screws. Slide the stereo out and remove the wiring harness and the antenna cable from the back of the stereo.
The stock stereo, from a 2003 Nissan Altima, can be removed by first removing the stereo front cover. Next, remove the four screws. Pull the stereo out and remove the wiring.

There are clips on both sides of the stereo that you need to depress to pull the stereo out. You can access these without taking off the dash cover. On the driver's side you can reach up under the plastic moulding and feel the side of the stero. The clip is at the front. On the passenger side I removed the glove compartment (about 8 screws) to get at the clips. In my Miata's owners manual it showed me step by step on how to get mine out. YOu may want to try there, if you haven't already. :)

Remove the plastic trim panels to the left and right of the stereo with your fingernails or something that will not scratch the plastic. This will reveal four holes on each side. At a Radioshack type store you can buy DIN removal tools. But for a Double Din stereo you will need to buy two such packages. The instructions come with the package.
