what does headlight 25 amp fuse look like?

According to my Haynes manual, the headlight system has a 25 amp fuse in it, right near the headlight switch on the dash. Supposedly, this fuse resets itself after an overload condition (which I learned on this board - thanks!) I looked in the location shown on the wiring diagram (somewhat vague) and think I may have found it, but thought I'd ask here to be sure. What I found simply looks like a thin piece of metal in the headlight switch itself - could this be it? Is it really that simple?

BTW, my original problem is this: When driving with high beams on, after a minute or so, the headlights go out entirely. After a few seconds they come back on. A few seconds later, they go out again, and so on, and so on, until I switch back to low beams (or crash, which ever comes first). I posted this question awhile ago, and somone said it may also be the dimmer switch on the steering column. I've already rewired the ground on each headlight (to no avail), so now I'd like to replace this 25 amp fuse (assuming I've found it). If that doesn't work, guess I'll tackle the dimmer switch. Thanks!
