I would think if you removed the coil wire and replaced it with a jumper wire, you'd get full power for the headlights in either dim or bright positions.

Connect headlight wire to #3. Remove resistor for no function when on 'dim' or replace resistor with jumper wire for high beam in either switch position. Rear light gets connected to #2. Adjacent screw probably holds internals in place, thus the flat plate jumper to #2 which will not detach anything internally if loosened.

Your front lights hook to #3, the power is switched from the inside to make power go through the resistor to give you high/low beams on the same wire at #3. Nothing hooks to ?. If you put a meter on #3 and ? they both won't have power at the same time but when you turn the switch to high beam #3 will have power and turn it to low beam ? will have power but it feeds through the resistor to give you low beam at the same wire at #3.
