Installing the GoWesty Relay and Bulb Upgrade for 86-91 Vanagons/Westys with Standard Grill.

Cut the first wire, stripped it and the next instruction says crimp the yellow wire to the yellow wire of the Low Beam Relay. OK, nowhere does it say in the instructions or on the relays which one is the High Beam Relay and which is the Low Beam Relay.

Here is a picture of the relays:

They appear to be identical in all markings, however:
The relay on the left reads: ++08-10-4 06 05 P2 (I'll call this Relay #1)
The relay on the right reads: ++08-10-6 06 34 P2 (I'll call this Relay #2)

Does anyone know which one is the low beam and which is the high beam relay?

Pick one and label it as high or low beam relay- they are the same. Good luck

The numbers at the top are date codes from the factory, made on different days. The bottom numbers are the part, both are the same part.
