Its the magnetic switch to activate the brake light (SPRING ASSY-DIMMER/BRAKE)

I am wondering what function it serves. The brake light, and dimmers work without it (the plastic clip broke on the part).

I broke mine off this year. $16.00 (if I remember right maybe it was less?) for a new one. The new part includes a new clip to hold it on. Function, don't know.

That's not too bad. I will just get one and be done with it.

this piece controls you low and high beam operation. so without it you wont have high beam lights.

I beleive all it does is push the lever back into place after pushing it out to swith hi/l or pulling it in to brake. I took one apart to see what was inside. Not much other than a spring and a magnet.
