If it's the V6 (can't answer for the 4), it's not easy, a lot of the engine accessory area has to be disassembled for this and valve cover removed (requiring new valve gaskets which are probably leaking anyhow), etc. Anything regarding timing belt (or water pump), and front wheel bearings, I consider "non-user serviceable", it's something for Mazda or a reputable Mazda certified repair department to handle. For the timing belt, simply go to Mazda, tell them you need your 60,000 mile (or equivalent multiple) service performed, get your wallet out to the tune of $840 or so USA dollars, and have alternate transport for a couple of days. This will get a lot of stuff cleaned and checked up, if you buy the parts separately, including replacement gaskets (valve cover (front required, both should be done though since you are in there), timing cover gasket, etc, you'll end up spending more for the parts than Mazda does for the overhaul, trust me on that.

Is there enough valve clearance from the piston on a Mazda mx3 1.8 when the timing belt slips?

''no ,it is an interference engine'' Wrong! Not even one mx-3 with 1.8 v6 engine have an interference engine! Your belt may slip or even split in half, no harm will be done to engine- valves will not be bent. Checked on my own experience 2x. If the timing belt slips, you may not be able to start you car , or it may work like machine gun(firing sounds)- very rough idle, not able to pick up speed e.t.c (depends on how many ''teeth'' of timing belt have slipped).
