Were the headlights too bright on low?
Yes that is the shield for high low beams. The big opening in the top is for low. The light comes out of the top and reflects off the top of the reflector then down at the road. When you actuate the high beams a solenoid pulls the center of the bulb where all the light comes from back into the window that faces down. this allows light to come out the bottom hit the bottom of the reflector and light up higher for high beams. DO NOT REMOVE IT you will blind the shit out of everyone.
