Hi! Please try this simple steps on removing the rear shocks.
- You will need to remove the trimmings on the rear to gain access to the nut holding the shocks
- Once you get a visual on the nuts please use penetrating oil specially if its rusty
- Once removed, go underneath to remove the lower bolts using an 18mm wrench (use penetrating oil)
- Now youre ready to put the new shocks on and repeat the procedure vise versa on putting it back on
Note: Please secure the wheels using jack stands to prevent injuries. Hope this helps and have a good one!

SOURCE: how do i remove quarter

You must be referring to the interior panels covering the top of the rear struts.
They just pop off with a little plying.
At Harbor Freight they sell a cheap set of plastic pry bars for this, so that you don't scratch anything.

SOURCE: how do you get at the top bolts on the rear shocks

you need to take apart the interior panels to gain access to these bolt. there are a few screws and a bunch of snap clips that hold these onto the body of the vehicle. but it is not too complicated to get to.

The rear shock went out in my 06 Mazda tribute is it ok to remove it and still drive on it temporarily


NOT a good idea! The shock is what keeps your wheel/tire planted on the road. Without it the tire will bounce like a basketball. This will reduce traction and handling, affect braking, and may do damage to your tires. A weak shock is still better than no shock.

Is it hard to change the rear whell bearings on 05


You are probably looking at about an hour per side. Brakes and backing plate must be removed. then the mounting bolts for the axle itself must be removed. this operation should be performed one side at a time in order to save the fluid inside the differential casing. It will become imperative that both oil seals are changed with the bearings. P.S. depending on the graciousness of the engineers, you may not have to remove the backing plates. Thank you, Dana

My 2005 mazda tribute brake lights will not turn off


The stop light switch is sticking. If it's a mechanical one that is operated by the movement of the brake pedal the replace the switch. If a hydraulic one is fitted, remove one wire and see if the stop lights go off. If so then replace the hydraulic switch.
