Why would you need to remove the gears unless they are broken? I hope you're not trying to take them off to replace the timing belt!

If you need to get them off, you need to keep in mind that they are pressed onto the cams... There are a few bolts, but you'll also need a pulley or gear removal tool. (Check your local auto superstore)

Be careful! Without the gears on, even though the cam is keyed to the gear, if you spin the cam, you could completely screw up the timing... I believe that Mazda engine in your contour is a zero-clearance engine, which means if you were 180 degrees off with one of your cams and started the engine, the valves would smash into the pistons and cause you a world of headaches.
