Question about 1997 Mazda Protege
On my 1996 model, the starter is below the engine and you must remove the catalytic converter, as well as a metal bracket, etc. a repair manual may be a good investment, as the starter, as well as other issues you may meet later, can be complex, in bad places, and quite frustrating.
On a side note, before you tackel this, if you have not already, if you are able to start it, places like Advance Auto Parts can check the batt, alt, and starter while they are in the vehicle. It seems that some people are haveing problems recently, such as myself, where it is not the starter. It would stink to change the starter and have it still not work.
I hope this helps, have a happy holiday.
