There are two bolts on the side of the fuse itself. Under the fuse box on each side. Unbolt those and it will come out.

SOURCE: 2003 Mercury Sable headlight bulb replacement

This problem is now resolved, thanks to a prior post by sableowner.

The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.

Look in your engine compartment. Should be a little diagram there, either on the strut tower, the radiator support, or the underside of your hood. Let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: Replacing 2 belts on a 2000 Mazda Protege

I recommend that you go to any Auto Parts store and by a repair user manual for your 2000 Mazda Protege.  They have pictures and arrows and stuff that you will need to do the whole job.  The non-Mazda version will cost approximately $15.00.
Because of the tensioner that may come off when while you are doing these belt changes, it is too complicated to talk you through this.
But with the manual, I am confident you can change them.

Mazda protege 5 2003 crank wont start

I purchased a used 2003 Mazda Protege w/170k on it. I knew it had a rod knocking at the time. It was still running. I bought a used motor 35k from Japan. I swapped everything But could never get it to run. I took it to the Mazda dealer (why not just flush cash in the toilet) They lied and said it needed a new computer.
Finally discovered that the harmonic balancer / lower pulley had Japanies spline for the crank position sensor. It ran great after I put the old pully on. In the intake the butterfly valves had come lose and fallen into the intake valves and shredded and then gotten into the crank. If you are hearing rattling remove your intake and you will find the butterfly valves have come loose.

How do I remove the inside door trim on a Mazda 2003 Protege so I can replace the exterior left hand rear view mirror?

Usually you have to remove all the handles etc. from the inside. (The screws are covered with plastic plugs or similar.) Then the trimming is held by plastic or metal clips around the edges. Carefully pry the interior off and gain access behind.

Where is the heater blower motor located on a 93 mazda protege? what will it look like?

It should be behind /underneath the glove-box.May have to remove the glovebox or the kick panel underneath.
Once you do, you will see a cyliderical object mounted vertical--about 3" in dia.,that's the motor itself and has mounting screws to the air ducting.Remove those screws and the electical conector to the motor, than the the whole assembly with the impeller and motor will come down.
Good Luck.

Need to change headlight on 2003 mazda rx 6

If it is the headlight itself. There may be a cover or shroud on the front of the engin bay. Remove that, may be a combination of clips and screws. If it does not cever the light area, it is even easier. There will probably be 3 screws or nuts, remover these and unplug the electrical to the light. From there you should just be able to pop the light out of place. If you are just replacing the bulbs. Where the power goes into the assembly, turn the clip, may be grey in color and pull out of the headlight assembly and replace the light bulb. But don't touch the new bulb the oils from your skin will damage the bulb.
