Safely raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the center nut (22mm or 24mm - not sure). Remove the Phillips drum retaining screws. Remove the drum.

Remove the hand brake mechanism springs noting their position very carefully. Wrong installation of these can cause not only no parking-brake application but also weak braking application. Remove the remaining springs. Do not disconnect any lines or disassemble the cylinder or subsequent bleeding will be required.

The brake shoes are usually the same size. However, should one be a little longer it should go to the back side of the backing plate.

Reverse procedure to install and do be careful with positioning springs in same areas. Use other side as reference.

Take out the old ones and replace them with new ones.

You need a big Socket (32MM I believe). Once you take off the nut the Drum will come right off. I have '95 MX6. Yes, a 32MM socket is needed. However, it is also possible that a large jaw clamp puller may need to be used in order to dislodge the bearings from the spindle. They seem to get stuck on there.

This is not an easy job to do yourself if you only have little knowlege. Get the Haynes Manual MAZDA 626 & MX6 FORD PROBE 1993_2001. No. 61042 This will tell you in detail how to remove & replace the balljoints . This is not an easy job to do yourself if you only have little knowlege.

The fuel cut off switch is located on the drivers side in the rear under the carpet. The switch will trip in the event of an accident.

The only additional tools you need are your fingers: 1) Underneath the brake cylinder, and partially blocked by a horizontal spring, is a steel assembly that runs horizontally from one brake shoe to the other.2) At one end of this assembly, you will see what looks a curved, serrated piece of metal poking toward you.3) Relieve the spring tension on that end of the assembly (by pulling the adjacent brake shoe toward the side), and you should be able to push the serrated piece of metal toward the center of the car so that it is almost flush with the assembly.4) This will allow the slotted blocks that push against the brake shoes to move closer together, creating enough clearance to allow the brake drum to slide on to the mounting bolts.5) If you have trouble relieving the spring tension, following are two additional techniques:temporarily disconnect the parking brake mechanism by pushing the slotted metal piece at the end of the cable toward the front of the car, then gently prying it loose from the metal piece that goes into the brake drum (this is much more obvious than it sounds). If necessary, temporarily remove the small spring at one end of the mechanism (by pulling the outer end away from the bracket). Take note of how the spring is installed so you put it back the right way.if that doesn't work, loosen the bleeder valve (if it isn't already) so some brake fluid can escape as you push the shoes together to release tension. This means that you should bleed that brake circuit again after you're all done, just in case any air got into the cylinder during the process.6) VERY IMPORTANT: That serrated piece of metal that you pushed is the automatic adjuster for the rear brakes. So after you've got everything put back together, back up a few times, gently applying the brakes each time. This will auto-adjust the rear brake shoes.7) The related link (below) from a service manual for a 1995 Mazda MX6 has a diagram of rear drum brakes that appears identical to the Protege setup. The piece that I refer to as a "steel assembly" is shown in the diagram as the "operating lever assembly."

3 bolts on starter, pull ,remove wires from start insert new starter and reattach wires and bolt into transmission

The answer to your question is the same for a 2.0 or 2.5... replace the timing belt and all of the pullies as well as the tensioner (spring-loaded on the 2.0L and hydraulic piston on the 2.5L).Go to probetalk.com and look for the how-to in the appropriate section. (probe and mx6 are built on the same chassis and drivetrain)

yes, the 626 and mx6 are interchangable maybe diff wiring but the same
