Question about 1993 Mazda Protege
Indications are that you have a defective buckle - possibly some liquid or dirt got into the female end of one of your belts and does not allow a good connection when activated. Sometimes you can clean enough to restore function, sometimes a replacement part - scrap yard - has to be installed.

to take out your drive shafts you first need to drain oil from gearbox.plug is on the bottom of box.when this is done remove wheels..take off your disc caliper (2 bolts).tie them up out of way.remove disc rotor(should just slide off).then you need to remove split pins from your steering rack(tierod).. 2 bolts where the part bolts to the strut.next is at base (lower control arm).you will see a bolt and nut(this will be tight to get out use a soft punch like copper or brass shaft to knock bolt out.dont damage thread).to replace this you have to make sure it sits in the right place or you will damage thread when you fit the bolt...when all this is done the hard part comes.the drive shaft is very tight in the gearbox due to a spring type circlip on the axle shaft.you have to wrench the shaft towards you to free it .some times you may have to get a very solid big flat screwdriver in between the gearbox and shaft to loosen past the clip.when it is free ,just slide out.when you have done what you need to do.assembly is just reversing whatyou have just done . to fill gearbox up you have to take out the speedo cable and speedo drive from the gearbox (at back off motor,1 little bolt).top up .you have a mark on the drive to tell you the level.hope this helps (have fun)

Yes there is a history of problems with this system, one is the limit switches at eacg end of the track and the other is the motors, there is no real fix other than replacing it.

did you check the voltage and amperage ratings of your battery compared to the standard preferred levels using a multimeter.if the levels are too low,try charging your battery manually and also check the generator unit in the car responsible for charging your battery. thanks for using fixya!
