Test each of the wires with a ohmmeter and find the earth connection, by testing between chassis and each wire in turn.

Mark the one that connects to earth.

Make sure no wires are touching earth and put side lights on you should see a voltage on one of the wires 12V when tested between itself and earth with a volt meter. That will be the side light wire.

Do the same for main beam and dipped beam label them as you go, its a process of elimination

Or illumination You'll have to go back to the switches if you don't do it by the tester method.

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.
