Should i panic ?

Hi all
Just wanted to ask about the wiring for the resistor packs on the radiator assy.
I have a twin radiator assembly and i have had changed the rad today and i have forgotten which wire goes where.
The wires have spade connector fitted to each brown and white pairs.
So as i look down from above which goes on the left on the upper and the same for the lower.
I am worried as the fans kick in at what i guess at full chat as the temp needle reaches the mark between 90 and 120 should i worry about this as my gtv kicks in just past 90?
How can i check for slow fan speed setting.

Has anyone got a photo showing what relays do what under the black cover on the bulkhead as im sure one does the slow fan speed.
Regards to all

They are just resistors (plus a thermal fuse), so it doesn't matter which way round the wires go.

By the sounds of it, you may not be getting low speed, which usually points to failed resistors.
Have you tested them with a meter?
