OK - I just replaced one on my dad's car - it's pretty easy. First unplug the wire - squeeze in on the right and left side of the plug to release the clips and the pull it straight back. Now you can remove the outer rubber boot - just pull on the tab on top to get it started. Now you can see the spring clip that holds the bulb in. Just grab the clip and wiggle it around while pulling it towards you. (towards the driver side of the car) The spring clip will pivot out of the way when you have unhooked it. Now just pull the bulb straight out without rotating it. Then install the new bulb* - align the 3 tabs on the bulb with the 3 on the socket, swing the spring clip back over and hook it, put the rubber boot back on, and plug in the new bulb. That's it!
*Since it is a halogen bulb, it is best not to touch the glass with your bare skin during installation.
need to replace the intake manifold gasket
Yes it does have ABS. The older Protege 1997 and older dosnt.
you can't fix a sensor, you can replace one by removing it and installing the new one...:)
Make sure it isn't the tire first. You will have to remove the strut, and have the bearing pressed out.
does a 1997 1.5l maxda protege have a timing belt or timing chain. When should i change it.
need more info my friend
It is the center to the right of the engine...
My local VIP shop in Yarmouth, Maine, wants $540! Claims they need to shape the line and it takes seven hours.... I have a 1999 Protege.
Center of the dash board you moron.
Should be the tensioner that the Alternator belt goes to
you must unbolt the frame from the body to be able to access 2 bolts
Above the brake pedal,its black plastic.
Replace your headlamp switch.
MY Mazda 1997 protege 1.5 takes the green one I think. and My car is a Canadian one meaning in winter it gets really cold. I love this car to death. Sam,
No. It does not.
I am having the same problem with a 99 Protege. I have changed the alternator and aligned/cleaned the pulleys and the problem persists.I replaced the alternator, on my 1997 Mazda Protege, seven times before someone figured out why the serpentine belt kept breaking. It was the belt tensioner! It had to be removed and rebuilt. Now it is working like a charm!! And I havn't had to replace the alternator in over 3 months!!!!
not likely. the 1997 Mazda protege is a different chassis than the 1999 protege (BHA to BJ, respectively). the two transmissions between the two generations are also different, the BHA utilizing the FB4A-EL automatic transmission and the BJ utilizing the FN4A-EL automatic transmission. they also have different engines. you're better off going to a junkyard and pulling a auto trans from a third generation protege (1999-2003)...that would work. if you have any further questions, you can follow this link: www.protegefaq.net hope this helps!
the fuel pump is in the gas tank itself. You have to remove the back seat to get at it.
I have a 1997 Mazda Protege ES and the Replacement Clutch cost about $125 from Advanced Auto Parts. The labor charged was around $350 at a local shop. I also had a broken Clutch Fork (the reason I had to get it fixed) which cost me only about $25 from Mazda's dealership. All together I had to pay around $500, but I believe I got a relatively good Labor cost; just shop around for the best price.
It is not equipped with a fuel pump reset button. Check the fuse and relay.
Check for a loose power steering belt.
