How do I adjust the sustain on an Allen protege organ to be more cathedral-like. The organ tech said it was too much and took it away and now I want it back.

Ge model 7 4100ja cathedral radio Static on AM,


My guess is that you got into the radio tuning circuit (little box with the screws) and, unless you have a signal generator and some basic electronic knowledge and equipment, you are just guessing and it's a hit or miss situation. I don't mean to sound pessimistic but may be you know someone who could take a look at it and let you know if it's worth fixing. Hope this helps.

What special tools are required to change the rear brakes of a 2002 mazda protege?


If it is a rear disc brake system, the only special tool would be an allen wrench:

Turn the manual adjustment gear counterclockwise with an Allen wrench to pull the caliper piston inward (turn until it stops).

If it is a drum type brake system...no special tools...just a screwdriver, pliers....

Very poor brake performance after changing rear shoes


It sounds like your self-adjusters are not assembled correctly allowing them to back off when braking.

Brake pad replacement steps for 1996 Mazda Protege


The pins (slides) are corroded, you need to clean them up. Use Liquid wrench or some such to loosen things up, then have at 'em with fine sand or emery paper. When everything is nice and bright and shiny, brake- lube the slides, reassemble. Take your honey out for a root beer.

Instructions on how to change the rear brakes on a 2002 mazda protege?


Give me a call.
1) I have owned a Mazda protege 5 for the last 4 years
2) I have done 2 complete brake jobs on it
3) I am a braking systems engineer.
4) I know what I am doing. I have done 100's of brake jobs on lots of different vehicles.

Biggest issue with the protege is getting the piston back in.
Look at the back of the caliper.
There is a thin head bolt on the back.
You need to take this off the caliper and reach inside with an allen head (I think it's 5mm). Then turn the set screw in there out a few turns. Then you can push the piston back in with a regular piston push back tool. Dont worry if the set screw comes out. Just thread it back in. But you HAVE to at least start it back in. It is part of the auto-adjust mechanism. After you do your brakes you may notice that your parking brake has A LOT of play. After you work it a few times it will tighten back up just fine.

Clean averything well and grease the slide pins with a good quality waterproof grease. There is special grease for slide pins.

I can't reinstall the rear drums on my 1994 mazda protege.


your new drums are thicker than the old ones due to wear. You may have to back the self adjusters off manually a few turns to get the new ones on. The adjuster is the little threadeded bolt lookin thing at the bottom of the brake shoes holding them apart. Turn the star looking dial to move it in aways. Afterwards back the car up a few times and push the pedal hard to stop. Repeating this will readjust the rear breaks after assembley. Hope this helps, Clay

Brake pads replacement on mazda protege 5 2002


if you cant push the piston into the caliper, unscrew the bolt on the back of the caliper and u can then insert a 3mm hex key and unscrew another bolt, that will loosen up the hand brake control and your piston will go in easily. I spent 2 hours fighting this until i read that on some other forum and worked like a charm :)

IMPORTANT - when u tighten the hex thing back, you MUST loosen it up a bit (1/8 of a turn or more) so ur wheel spins freely. Otherwise ur pads will rub way too much.

Good luck!
