    Protege5 Manual Transmission Options

    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to the forum and did try searching but couldn't find much info. I'm trying to locate a used manual transmission for my 2003 Protege5 w/o ABS. I've heard of people doing swaps from mid 90's Ford Probe's, Mazda 626's, and standard Protege but can't get confirmation on if it's a direct swap.

    Can someone please confirm what transmissions would be a direct swap with little or no modification?

    Thanks for the info! I found one out of a 1999 Mazda 626 for about $200 I was gonna try out. Glad to get the confirmation before I pulled the trigger.

    Whatever vehicle you find to get your used tranny be sure to use your original vehicle speed sensor or the speedometer will not be correct

    a good resource is also going to www.car-part.com it is a junkyard search engine and will check all of the large junk yards in whatever area you specify.

    ^^^ What he said.
    Cars with ABS get their speed info from the wheel speed sensors.
    Cars without ABS get their speed info from a speedo gear installed in the transmission.
    ABS cars don't have that gear...
    I don't know if the gear is different on other makes and models.

    Thanks for the advice guys! I ended up getting one from a 99 mazda 626 and it was a straight swap with zero issues. Got the old one out and new on installed in about 8 hrs last weekend. I wasn't sure if the speed sensor would cause an issue or not but swapped it anyways just cause I knew mine was good and it's a pain to reach later.

    The site mentioned above is a great resource that was very helpful in locating the trans but it didn't do the cross reference from my Protege5 to the 626 or the probe so I just used it to search for each separately.
