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.

you have to remove the turn signal light and some of the trim (grill) to get to the screws that hold the light assembly in place. 10 minute job.
