Mazda Protege Repair Question
you need to open the brake fluid container under the hood and try to stuff a rag under it the best you can because you will have fluid overflow probably..... next while the caliper is off you need to find a way to depress the piston in the caliper probably using vice grips or a screwdriver.... do this only when the pads are off because you may crack or gouge the pad itself

WEll you could try all you want to push the piston back with a pair of channel lokcs or a screw driver....but buddy it aint gonna happen with the rear calipers on a '01-'03. The rear calipers of a protege have to be turned back using an allen key.
Also the protege's have a rather common problem with seizing the pads in the caliper cages...so make sure the cage is filed/sanded out well
