Now - looking at the relay terminals, the white/red from the car plug (constant live with headlights ON) goes to pin85 and also the dipped beam on the n/s headlight. The other side of the dipped beam bulb goes to earth. The o/s dipped beam is white/red from the cars original plug, connect this to the dipped bulb and the other side of the bulb to an earth.
Pin30 on the relay needs to be a 12v constant live from the battery with a 15amp in-line fuse.
Pin86 on the relay needs to go to earth.
Pin87 on the relay needs to have 2 wires coming from it, each of which going to one side of both main beam bulbs (run a wire across the car from left to right to get to o/s main beam bulb terminal).
The yellow/red from the cars original headlight plugs are NOT USED at all !
So looking at the n/s wiring, the red/blue from the cars original headlight plug goes to the other side of the main beam bulb - this is a switched earth on main beam. This is where the confusion has developed from
Hope this helps.
Mr B will put a drawing up later - we're going to fit my carbon bonnet now
