SOURCE: mazda 2003 MPV door locks
I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in
a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door
try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back
several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the
door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the
latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between
Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module
At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.
From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.
Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.
Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

You need to drain the radiator enough to add antifreeze/coolant. Thre is a drain plug/screw at the bottom corner of the radiator on the driver side.
You should drain it completely and close the valve then add coolant at the proper mixture.

Hello there, As far as the check engine light I would think since you mentioned it shacking that your light will probably be on for a misfire, Meaning most likely you have a spark plug wire going bad. I would stop by somewhere such as Autozone for a free check to tell you why your light is on just to double check.
Your fan issue could be several different things such as the fan motor going bad or the blades could be rubbing something, that one is a little tricky without hearing it.
Good Luck and I hope this does help you some. Allen

possible head gasket do a preasure test on the coolant system to see if it loses any coolant or presure drops and check for leaks hope this helps

Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine thermostat inside that house. Make sure dot on thermostat shown above is the correct way.
