Genuine Mazda 6 Overhead Console Sunglass Holder with spring will not stay closed. If you are out of warranty this is a cheaper way to repair the problem without buying the complete overhead console assembly. See both images to see your color.
It fit fine but I didn't know where the loose end of the spring went so I have to manually open it. I wasn't going to use it anyway, I just wanted a door for the hole that was there. The door stays closed and looks good so I'm a happy camper. It would have been 5 stars if there had been a little note about the spring.

Med Center Mazda did a great job of shipping me the correct part in two days. Very impressed.
Sadly, although the part was correct and all there, I was not able to replace it in the console without the console shattering. This is on Mazda for over (perhaps under) engineering what should be a simple replacement part that has a clip that breaks. I will live with the cracked overhead console for a while.
If you have any doubts about being able to replace this part, then just buy the entire console and skip the part where you have to try to wrangle an oversized part into a brittle, much smaller space that may shatter. It will cost you more but it's arguable worth it in the long run.

Needed to replace the console door that held my sunglasses and Mazda was charging me double. My research brought me here and I was able to buy exactly what I needed and for a reasonable price. Will buy from here again.
The Glass Case was identical to the OEM part. Replacement took seconds. Shipping was prompt! Med Center Mazda is a great place to shop.
