For stuff like this, it's best to search the gallery. Here's what I found:

Please be careful!
The picture above is labelled incorrectly!
The correct wiring can be found in the Technical section under wiring, Thing current flow diagram.

Terminal 53 = Black Wire = Motor Low Speed
Terminal 53b = Black Yellow Wire = Motor High Speed
Terminal 53a = Black Grey Wire = Motor constant power from fusebox 15
Terminal 53e = Green Wire = Park Circuit to switch
Terminal 31 = Brown Wire = Ground or Earth

The pictures in the archive need to be updated or stricken, as they provide incorrect information.

thank you for ur help.
Ok, the picture diagram has incorrect labels, but are the wires attached correctly to the motor in the picture. If so, I think I can copy the picture when pluging my wires in.
For what it is worth, I do try and use the search function before I post, but I rarely find the correct posts which answer my questions. I don't know if I do it wrong or what, but it seems like I always get tons of posts from my search which don't help much. I do appreciate ur help though!

The first one I posted is not that inaccurate, one terminal is listed with the wrong number (31b instead of 53e) otherwise the wires, positions and functions are correct.
