Question about 1998 Mazda Protege
I had the same problem, repeatedly for more than a year. Turns out that the first time the belt broke and was replaced, something in the piece that the belt raps around was moved very slightly out of line. The mechanic told me that the piece has to eb calibrated perfectly; otherwise the belt will keep loosening and breaking. The piece--I think it was the bracket (or whatever) on the water pumpt that holds the belt onto the pump--was reclaibrated, and, voila! No further problems, at not yet.
