Question about 1999 Mazda Protege
I am wondering if you had to use a special tool in order to remove the inside door panel in order to access into the window tracks q I am having the same problem as well.
No, just a phillips and a large flat driver or pry tool. Remove plug from upper rear side of door. Pry off the triangular cover that is above the panel and covers the backside of the mirror mount. Then lift the lower edges of the panel to pop out or pry out the nylon plugs that anchor the panel to the door. Do this carefully. Next unscrew the handle cover. You'll see the lever handle is attached to the latch rod with a nylon sleeve over the hook on the rod This is flipped around to release it. When you peek in it will be self-evident. I found this the hardest piece to get back on. Do this carefully to not lose or break the little nylon sleeve.New ones can be purchased if you do. Next you need to find the screws that secure the panel. The first is totally visible. The next is found when you pop off the soft vinyl arm rest starting from the back. The next and last is a vinyl covered screw visible in the upper right of panel. Think that's it. Then pop out the electronic controls for windows. Once removed there is a waterproof plastic attached to door with black sticky caulking. Peel this off carefully and you can reseal it later. Of course you need to unplug wiring, and also remove door handles and screws as you go. I think I got all the details for you.
