I was looking in my low beam lights today, after I put in my new blue headlights, and around the bulb there is this metal cylinderical thing. And on the high beams there isnt one.

Does anyone know what this is for and if anyone has removed it before?

I was hoping to remove it but im not sure if it is needed at all since the high beams doesnt have this.

Thanks

Not really sure the answer to your question, but what extreme said seems to make sense. I was curious what kind of lights your ended up going with after all the suggestions in the other thread? And did you get the color blue you were after?

its the heat shield. i took it out of mine. but i never could figure out why it was in the LOW beam rather than the high? its not too difficult to take out however youll need 2 sets of needle nose plyers & patients b/c they are thicker than they look. if you have a nice chrome finish on your housing try not to scratch it. if you want i can go get a pic.

yes please, and could you go in detail on how you got them out, did you take the glass off or did you take it out thru the headlight hole or how did you do it, because I like the look of haveing the blue lights also when they arent on and you cant tell cause of that stupid thing.

I got them out thru the light part, just took a while to flatten it out so I could pull it thru.
