Most window handles are help on by a clip in the back. This one is also. I usually take two flat tip screw drivers and pop the clip off by pushing on each end of the clip(both ends are facing the same direction). Handle will pull right off. to re-install simply put the clip back on in the groves and push the handle back onto the shaft.

SOURCE: obd2 code p0300 on mazda protege 2002

Just had one of these with a maxima, the code is multiple random misfire, when a misfire occurs, to start is do the basics, replace the plugs, check fuel pressure, clean throttle body, and coolant is topped up. also I have seen if the O2 sensor is not working correctly is can cause a misfire, you will need a scan tool to look at what the O2 sensor is doing, o rby back probing the sensor (don't damage the O2 sensor wires). If it wires replace them as well, if it has coils they usually dont give that code if one fails, it will pinpoint that a certain coil if one fals.

SOURCE: Ignition lock is stuck (locked) on 92 mazda protege

Please dont think Im talking down to you when I ask this, but did you try turning the steering wheel? If the steering wheel is got tension on it ie against a curb, etc then the key wont turn in the cylinder. If that isnt the case then if you have the inclination you can try taking the steering column apart and replacing the ignition switch, or get it towed to your mechanic...

SOURCE: How to replace the rear door lock actuators?

My son and I both have Proteges, and we had this problem also. There is a nylon gear that the shaft sheers off of, usually in cold weather. We went to the auto wrecker and got relacement actuaors for $10 each and replaced them. The hardest part is learning to take the door panels off. I just did a web search for this and found clear instructions. On my son's car we were only able to get the actuator motor from the opposite side (they are specific to each door) so we carefully took it apart, and changed the gear only, as the gears are identical in all the doors. The housing is what is different for each door.

My 2002 protege's door handle doesn't want to open the door! how can I fix that?

if neither handle will open it, Inside or out, its a little harder to do, But can be done, you need to remove the inside door panel , and reach inside the hole inside the inner and outer door panel, and unlatch the door mechanism, whats happened is that the arm leading to it has a little plastic retaining clip that holds it on and its either just popped out or has broken

My mazda protege5 power windows not working except the driver side. I check the fuse box #12, it is not shorted. What advise could you give me would be appreciated.

There is a safety disabling switch on the control POD on your drivers side door panel. Simply press and release a few times and observe the behaviour of the switch. It is a push for "ON" and push for "OFF" type switch, it has a marking of a square with an X across it. This button should remain down for ALL the windows to function, if you should see that it is in the up position, the 3 door windows will not operate.

open the trunk, and underneath the shelf, below the rear window, there should be 2 screws or bolts, remove them and the whole unit can be removed from inside, At least this is how most of them are.

Replace driver's side door hdle & locking mechanism on 02 Protege

Removing the door skins are not hard, the problem is that they normally use a special tool. Without the tool you may break a few of the plastic clips. If so no worries go to your local automotive department and look for the clips. 
You will also have at least one screw that attaches the skin to the door frame. Usually remove the bottom of door panel and work around both sides until you get to the window. Then remove the screw and unplug any of the power options..
Haynes or  Chiltion manual for your car should show you details.. It is easy for the average DIY person.
The handle is just as easy. Do you have metric and torx because you will need them.
