To remove the tail light assembly on a 1997 Mazda Protege remove the two screws that are usually covered by the trunk. After that use some force and push on the inner part of the tail light toward the side of the car. There is a clip in the side of the car that requires some force to undo. Make sure you push in the outward direction to either the driver side on the driver side tail light or the passenger side for the passenger side tail light. After that is removed the tail light should be hanging by wires ready for bulb changes. To change the bulbs just twisth the plastic part.

How do you replace the brake light bulb on a 2001 Mazda Protege?

I just did it. You remove two round thingamajigs from the trunk lid protector (round things with round circles in the middle--use a screwdriver to pop up the middle circle, then once that is popped up you can pull the whole thing out). Then remove three more from the trunk mat around the tail light. Then there are three lugnuts to remove from the tail light assembly (a rather tight pinch). Once those are removed, you can pull off the assembly from behind. From there it is easy--the lights twist to unlock and you can pull out the bulb and replace it. Then do everything in reverse to re-assemble.
