SOURCE: how do I replace the front wheel bearings on a Mazda 626 1998

The front bearings on a mazda 626 are sealed and you must remove the entire hub assembly to have a shop or dealer install the bearings. The hardest part is you need to remove the center axel nut and it is very tight and is called a stake nut. If you do not have a fairly good amout of skill at repairs, this is one job that is safest left to the pros. Just one missed step can create more damage than you could beleive.

SOURCE: how to change a starter on a 96 mazda 626

Write down the radio's activation code prior to disconnecting the battery' s negative terminal.

Remove the air-intake duct and the air filter housing. (assuming this your car is 4-cylinder)
Remove the bracket that runs between the inlet manifold and the starter-motor.
The starter-motor is by the left-side of the transmission over the axle-shaft.
Disconnect its solenoid wire and the positive wire attached to the starter-motor.
Remove the three 14mm bolts holding it up.
Once taken out, exchange it for a rebuilt one at your local autoparts store.
Installation is reverse of removal.

1999 mazda 626, 4cyl. Car will not restart after running. If the car sits for several minutes (~15-30) the car will restart and run fine.


Sounds like a possible starter problem if the starter will not turnover the car's engine when hot. Change the starter.

Check the Fuel injection system (injectors) and the intake manifold. It might also be wise to check the alternator as well as the starter coil and also the electronic distributor
