The part is a silder that sits on the outer edges of the console lid; they ride along the small rails. If you try to open the console (vertically) without sliding it all the way back, you will break the clip.
You take off the entire center console lid, and Mazda gives you a new one. I just replaced mine last weekend, and it was covered under warranty from John Elway Mazda.
