Hey... did you do anything special? I bought everything you did, installed it myself and it didn't work. Then I brought it to Best Buy and it still didn't work. I got the parts swapped and it still doesn't work. Can anyone help? Is it my factory radio?

I need some help removing roof rack. I have a 2002 Protege 5. I got the two bars off. Do the black plastic rails attached to the roof come off? And if so, will i need to plug any sort of holes left in the roof? Thanks for any help anyone has.

You could remove them, but you'd have to remove all the hardware bolted into the slots and get the trim pieces that are fitted into those slots (as the ones w/o roof racks are fitted).
If your P5 came with a roof rack, it also should have come with some plastic pieces that plug the "holes" that are left when you remove the cross bars. It's much easier to just snap these into place than remove all the hardware.
#1195 of 1221 Speaker depth on A 99 mazda protege
May 24, 2006 (6:27 pm)
Hello. i have searched everywhere for the speaker depths on a 99 mazda protege. The reason is that I am buying a whole new audio system for my car ( about 4000$). I am wanting to put 2 x 6,5" component speakers in the front. Now in mazda protege's the speakers are 6x8... so I am going to have to make some mdf baffles so the speakers stay in place. I wanted to know the mounting depth of the factory speakers so I can choose some good 6,5" that will actually fit in the door. Thx.

http://www.crutchfield.com shows 2+7/16" as the largest depth speaker they say will fit the front doors in a 1999 Mazda Protege. That web site will show you many speakers that will fit your Protege.

The speakers I am getting are 2 3/4" .... do you think they will fit? If not... well I need to make a mdf baffle anyway.. so I could make the baffle like 1/2" so the speakers wont touch the door panel and will fit. I am also putting soem deadener and some overkill to kill vibrations and distortion.. that will also take about 3/4 of an inch if not more. I think the speakers should fit

I took a second look at Crutchfield and found that they offer two speakers with 2+5/8" depth that they say will fit 1999 Mazda Protege front doors. But that's not to say that there may actually be more depth than that available. Good luck.
